Are you ready to join the unicorn craze? Clearly I’ve been on the unicorn train since it first arrived. I mean, who can resist all the magic, rainbows, and glitter that a unicorn has to offer?
These meringue cookies hold their shape really well and are perfect for making adorable “unicorn poops.” Plus you can make them in whatever color you want, and they're not too hard to create.
The trick to making these cookies is making sure that the batter remains cool and stiff. This way, they keep their “poopy” shape even before getting them in the oven. If the batter gets too warm things start to get runny, and nobody wants a droopy poopy.
4 egg whites at room temperature
¼ tsp cream of tartar
1 cup granulated sugar
Red food coloring
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven to 170 degrees F.
Using an electric mixer, start mixing egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed.
Once the egg and cream of tartar start blending in with one another (you’ll notice small bubbles), add the sugar slowly, preferably in thirds.
Once your mixture lifts in stiff peaks, it’s ready. Mix in a couple drops of red food coloring and scoop into a piping bag.
Pipe out poop-shaped dollops on your lined baking sheet, leaving 2-3 inches of space between each meringue cookie. Generously add rainbow and gold sprinkles. Don’t worry about the meringue cookies being uniform… unicorn poop is magical but not necessarily consistent!
Bake for 2 hours and let cool for at least 30 minutes.
These cookies would be a huge hit at any unicorn themed party, or just as a surprise for your favorite unicorn loving friend. Or, I guess you could just eat them all yourself, I mean, we're not judgey over here.
