Dip, Dip like a Unicorn Dip

No, I’m not talking about dance moves. I’m talking about an ooey, gooey colorful dip that you can eat with sorts of mix-in’s. It’s simple to make and looks so cute too! Just think of it as tasty Unicorn fluff!

The key to a good unicorn dip is making sure you nail the colors. Sure, Unicorns can be all sorts of rainbow colors but I truly love the pastel pink, purple and mint.

While you can certainly use food coloring, I’ve found that gel food colors actually mix better into food such as the cream in this dip.

Remember a little goes a long way and will help you achieve that pastel color look for your dip.

In case you are wondering which gel food colors I used, I found mine on Amazon. The links to the colors I used are below.

How to Make Unicorn Dip:

In a small bowl, whip heavy cream with an electric mixer until you have soft peaks.

In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, your heavy cream, marshmallow cream, sugar, and vanilla. Blend with an electric mixer until smooth.

Divide mixture into 3 equal parts, and add one *small* drop of gel color to each until you have a desired color.

In a clean serving bowl, add 1 spoon full of each of your colored mixtures, alternating until your bowl is full. Take a fork and stir lightly until you have a desired blended look.

Add sprinkles and edible glitter.

Serve with graham crackers, wafers, or your favorite fruit.

I made this recipe, but changed the 3 cups of sugar to 1 1/2 cups of sugar, and it was delicious!! No grainy texture or anything! Thanks for the great recipe!

Yes, I agree. 3 cups of sugar seems too much! Way too gritty. We will probably still serve it with fruit and graham crackers for my daughters 5th unicorn family birthday celebration today but may toss the extra and remake another time with much less sugar.

This recipe is pretty, but I can't believe it calls for 3 whole cups of sugar, in addition to marshmallow fluff! I'll need to dip vegetables in it to balance out the sweetness! Luckily I have some extra whipping cream I can add in to take off the edge.

Can this be refrigerated overnight?

It can but I will say, it makes the dip a little bit harder so I prefer to enjoy it right after being made.
