Unicorn Bites

Unicorn bites - Kara's Party Ideas - Mykidstime unicorn party food

We love this idea from Kara’s Party Ideas for all birthday parties in our house, unicorn-themed or not, and they are universally popular. Dip marshmallows in melted white chocolate or candy melts, then dip into a bowl of sprinkles. Place standing upright in a tray and chill to set.

A word of warning – these are VERY more-ish, so make more than you think you’ll need (we have quite a bit of ‘taste-testing’ in our house!).
