Unicorn Bark

There’s a really fun unicorn trend going around social media where there are all kinds of treats decorated with colors of different hues and tones.  I’ve seen milk shakes, ice cream sandwiches, truffles, hot chocolate and candy bark made in this style and I love it.  It’s the perfect sweet treat for Valentine’s Day or spring holidays such as Easter and Mother’s Day.

This Valentine’s Day, I am in charge of my son’s second grade classroom treats and I can’t wait to distribute pieces of Valentine’s Day unicorn bark to the kids.  I will be packaging them individually in cellophane bags and attaching a valentine card with a special message to the bag.  The kids are going to love this special surprise.

I had a chance to experiment in the kitchen with different candy melt colors and sprinkles.  One of my favorite ways to decorate this colorful candy is with Fruity Pebbles.  The colors are vibrant and so much fun.  Plus, who doesn’t love a little fruity-taste-crunch in their bark?

The candy-making possibilities are endless.  You can use any color combination with a sprinkle of Fruity Pebbles for any special occasion.  I had heart-shaped candy sprinkles, candy lips and pink sugar to create a special Valentine theme candy for the kids.  For this treat, I only used white and pink candy melts to keep the theme consistent.

This special candy can be made a few days ahead.  No need to rush.  Just keep them refrigerated or in a cool place in your kitchen until it’s time to serve or distribute to guests.
