Poor poor Sparkle Toes (my Unicorn) hasn’t been feeling very well lately. She must have an upset stomach, as she has BARFED all over the place!
Unicorn Barf?? Well, it’s got to be better than the Unicorn Poop cookies that have been making their way around the internet! Isn’t it? It’s magical, pretty, sparkly, and tastes amazing!! All of the things I would imagine unicorn barf would taste like.
Unicorns are one of those animals (unless you’re a Lululemon lover and then it’s a sought after product that can’t be found) that dominate childhood fantasies and dreams, and then one day, you wake up and never think about them again. Lucky for me, I have a (day) job that keeps me in the mindset of 5-6 year olds, and I get to hear unicorn talk all the time. I love the magical aspect of a unicorn- anything bright, sparkly and rainbow like must be magical.
After having seen 30903 versions of unicorn poop cookies on the internets, I knew I had to jump on the craze, but with a different twist. What could be as gross and unappealing as poop? It had to be barf. Finding the marshmallows was the only time consuming aspect of this recipe, as the recipe itself is very simple. I thought about buying boxes and boxes of Lucky Charms cereal and sorting out the marshmallows, but I figured someone probably had already done that for me on the internets. I love the internets. It has everything!
I was pleased to find “Charms Cereal Marshmallows” from Hoosier Hill Farms on Amazon and ordered myself 2 bags immediately. One to practice with and make the barf, and one to . . . uh, eat. Unfortunately for me, only one bag arrived so keep that in mind if you choose to order from Hoosier Hill Farms. *at the time of me writing this, Amazon has refunded my money for the second bag, and Hoosier Hill Farms has only sent me an email saying they are “sorry I filed a claim against them”. Thanks to Amazon for rectifying the situation immediately.
- 1/4 cup butter (60 g)
- 2 cups mini marshmallows (116 g)
- 2 1/2 cups coloured marshmallows (119 g) (I got my Marshmallows here)
- Melt butter and marshmallows in a microwavable bowl. Heat for 30 second intervals, stirring until completely melted.
- Mix in coloured marshmallows, stirring gently and with as few strokes as possible.
- Using greased spoons (I used butter), drop spoonfuls of the marshmallow mixture onto a silicone mat, or parchment paper.
- Allow to cool completely.
- Serve, or store in a sealed container for 2-3 days.
I’m off to help Sparkle Toes feel better. Maybe Lucky Charms will help.
