Unicorn Bark.

Why you need to make this Unicorn Bark…

Do your children like unicorns? Kate loves them. I love them. Do you like chocolate? Err, silly question … so what could be more perfect than this Unicorn Bark – rainbow-coloured  and covered in beautiful sprinkles? Nothing, I hear you shout! So let’s get on with it. When can we eat it?

Why did we make bark?

This recipe for Unicorn Bark is one that Kate and I worked on when were doing a craft fair recently. We didn’t sell much though, as it was so meltingly hot that we had to keep all the unicorn yummies in a cool bag in the shade! Obviously, that meant that we had lots left and had to eat it afterwards… well, every cloud has a silver lining. It was scrummy!

What you will need..

We made this a couple of times and did things differently each time and that is kind of the beauty of the recipe. You can use all of your favourite ingredients. I’ll tell you what we used, but you can change it to make it your own.

unicorn bark ingredients

  • 2 bars of white chocolate (this forms the base of the bark – we used cooking chocolate)
  • Candy Melts in assorted unicorn colours – these are available from supermarkets, craft shops and online. I found these Unicorn chips – they were just what I needed.
  • Assorted sprinkles, glitter, stars – anything goes.
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Mini meringues

Steps to Unicorn Bark Joy 🙂

  1. Either in the microwave or on the hob, melt the chocolates in separate bowls.
  2. Line a baking tray or dish with greaseproof paper – this makes it easier to break up the bark later.
  3. Pour 2/3 of the melted white chocolate onto the tray, spread it out but take care to keep this layer quite thick as this is the base of the bark.
  4. Take each of the coloured Candy melts and, using a spoon, drizzle the colours over the base layer.
  5. Drizzle the remaining white chocolate. You are looking for layers of colour all mixed over each other.
  6. Use a palette knife to swirl the colours together but don’t over-mix.
  7. While the bark is still wet, decorate it with sprinkles, mini marshmallows and mini meringues (go crazy – whatever you want goes. Be more unicorn!)
  8. Put the tray into the fridge and allow to set completely. Yes, I’m afraid that you will have to wait a little while.
  9. Remove the bark from the fridge and break into pieces. We had made our bark quite thick as the last time we made it we thought it was too thin, but you can see that John found it quite hard to break. It was solid! Try not to handle it too much – chocolate melts at body temperature – not that it gets a chance at my house!!
  10. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or bag up for a party. This yummy treat is great in a party bag.
