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!

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).

  • 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

**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.
