Unicorn Poop™

FeaturedContest Winner

Brought to you by Sweet Insanity Bake Shop :

Magically Delicious! Unicorns may manage their elusiveness but they left behind some fanciful evidence of their existence and I was able to recreate their leavings.

This unicorn poop, in reality, has a funny story. I told my mom that I was making some "Unicorn Sneezes" and she said "when are you going to make your unicorn sh*t?" And then it hit me...Great idea, Mom! It will take a dirty spin and become unicorn poop, instead! She doesn't want the credit for encouraging me, but I still thank her. Haha. BTW: These things are sparkly to the max. Even more-so than ANY art project. I wish that the video would have captured the magic. *cry*

The real deal - it's made of sugar cookies, rainbow dragees, rainbow star sprinkles, white sparkle gel, and rainbow disco dust.

Enjoy! <3

**** Update 4/12/12 **** I'm very excited about all of the responses that I've been getting, and I am so excited to see what you guys have done with this idea. Thanks for adoring this cute recipe and sharing the magic with your families and friends. :) Once I get a moment, I will collect all the images on the net and make a "step" with the photos that I find! ALSO - I baked my unicorn poop cookies for a cake show in San Diego and I got second place, with a trophy and certificate. Pretty awesome!!

*Disco Dust, Rainbow - $8
*Wilton's Sparkle Gel, white - $4
*Rainbow Dragees - $8
*Star Sprinkles - $2

The amount of poops that you will get from this recipe depend on how big your unicorn is.

Cool! Is the disco dust supposed to be used for food?
Farther down, someone commented that it is actually plastic craft glitter, so it shouldn't be eaten even though it is 'non-toxic'. (I was wondering the same thing after seeing the picture of the jar above)

I gotta ask...what are unicorn sneezes? I googled it and there isn't anything that I could find. My curiosity is peaked lol.

I made these for my younger cousin's birthday, she and her entire family got a huge kick out of it. (And the jokes about what a crappy gift I got her went on for days...) But as a retaliatory gift she made me some Dragon Poop. It is a chocolate cookie, with butterscotch chips, various sprinkles and homemade sugar gems (Her sister is a cake decorator)

The lady at the store I bought mine at suggested to put some in the lid, use a brush and sort of "flick" the brush over what I wanted to disco dust. (hold it in one hand and tap with the other)

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I used your instructable in my Halloween venture this year. I made Lady Rainicorn from Adventure Time and built a conveyor belt that allowed the unicorn to poop your unicorn poop cookies of epicness. Check it out if you get a chance

I was bored; so for some reason, I decided to go to Google and put in poop and I got here...

Don't ask.
If only there was a way to put pop rocks in these that wouldn't activate until you ate them! Please tell me someone has a solution for how to make that happen?
Well you could put it. On the sparkle gel or if it doesn't work u could wait 4it 2 dry and put it on

For those commenting about the cookies "spreading," the warmer your butter, the more your cookies will spread during baking. Try using cold or just soft butter when you're mixing the cookies. It's a little harder to mix this way, but you should maintain a nice little "pile" of poop!

I'm trying to make these tonight, but I'm using a gluten-free cookie recipe.
How did you make yours GF?? Mine did not work, tasted ok but spread
try using cold butter...the softer the butter, the more the cookies will spread
