Rainbow Unicorn Dessert Cups

Unicorns and rainbows is killer combination, especially for a unicorn party! When I spotted a unicorn horn mold, I had to have it. I've had so much fun making mermaid party food that it was.
Rainbow Unicorn Dessert Cups


  1. ½ cup bright white candy melts
  2. 4 to 10 candy melts in red, orange, yellow, green, royal blue and lavender
  3. canola oil or shortening
  4. 1 cup boiling water
  5. 1 pkg. (0.6 oz.) JELL-O berry blue gelatin
  6. 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  7. 1 tsp. vanilla
  8. 2 cups thawed COOL WHIP whipped topping
  9. 2⅔ cups mini marshmallows
  10. whipped cream or whipped topping
  11. sprinkles


  • Melt candy melts and ½ teaspoon oil one at a time to create a rainbow ROYGBIV. (Indigo can be created with equal parts royal blue and lavender.) Heat just until melted and stir well.
  • Start with lavender at the tip of the horn and work your way down.
  • Paint each color one at a time using food safe brushes and chocolate unicorn mold.
  • Once dry, fill in unicorn horn mold with bright white candy melts.
  • Gently tap mold to even out chocolate and remove any air bubbles.
