Unicorn Bread

Unicorn Bread

Unicorns are all the rage over on Instagram these days! With Unicorns in mind, I wanted to create a fun and easy (non-sweet) treat, simple enough for kids to make! Thus, Unicorn Bread was created!!! This recipe was tested at a preschool with 76 kids (ages 2-5 years old) and all of the kids LOVED making this bread! The best part is, this is a non-yeast bread and only takes 10 minutes in the oven!

Unicorn Bread

INGREDIENTS: (for this colorful Unicorn Bread, you can easily divide this recipe into 2 (for two different colors) OR make two or more versions of the full recipe).

Makes about 8 Rolls

  • 1  1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp salted butter or margarine
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp of garlic salt or seasoning; if desired
  • food coloring
  • melted butter or margarine and salt

DIRECTIONS:

Unicorn Bread

**For the youngest chefs, it is best to pre-measure the ingredients or assist them with measuring.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients (including the food coloring of choice) into a medium bowl with a fork until soft dough forms.
  3. Gently roll dough into a ball on a floured (hard) surface.
  4. Knead dough 10 times incorporating flour as needed to prevent stickiness. Note: When making this with littlest of chefs, it is best for an adult to do this part.
  5. Divide dough into 16 pieces.
  6. Roll pieces out long (like a snake).
  7. Twist the 2 snake pieces together and roll inward to form a twisted ball and place onto a cookie sheet.
  8. Brush melted butter on top of rolls and add sprinkles of salt.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  10. Cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!! These are also great for dipping in cheese sauce or marinara sauce.

Unicorn Bread: Twist the two rolled out snakes together.

Unicorn Bread: Roll into a twisted ball and top with melted butter and sprinkle salt on top of rolls before baking

Pair these adorable chocolate chip mini muffin pancake bites with these delicious egg muffins! All you do is mix up your egg the way you want. Spray a regular size muffin pan with a non-stick spray. Line the inside of the muffin wells with raw or half way cooked bacon. Pour in the egg mixture. Season according to taste. OR you can cut up pieces of bacon to whisk into the egg mixture. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees! Easy Peasy! AND they taste delicious!
