These easy to make iced rich tea biscuits are a great after school or rainy day activity for little ones, especially if they are a unicorn lover. They will love making pretty colours and patterns on the biscuits and decorating them with sprinkles and the end result is just fabulous - and delicious to eat too! Read on to find out how to make easy unicorn biscuits.
Have you been caught up with the unicorn trend yet? My girls absolutely love everything unicorn and if something has a unicorn on it they want it! We've got a list of unicorn themed things as long as my arm that they want to make! A few weeks ago we made a healthy unicorn smoothie and they want to make unicorn slime and I have my eye on a unicorn macaron recipe that looks amazing! For now though we've been having dun making these really easy unicorn biscuits.
Rainy Day Activity
On another rainy day this holidays we decided to make these easy no bake unicorn biscuits. My eldest absolutely loved making them with me and they were so much fun to make and really easy too because there's no cooking involved! We made a little trip to the supermarket to buy food colouring and sprinkles and then made these in the afternoon so it whiled away a couple of hours! They are perfect for making with younger children because there's lots of mixing and stirring involved and there's no baking so no need to worry about little fingers getting hurt! That said, my 10 year old absolutely loved making these and once I showed her how to do it she made them all!
What you will need to make these unicorn biscuits
The beauty of these biscuits is that you can pick up everything you need really easily, and it's quite likely that you will have most of it in your store cupboard. You will need...
- rich tea biscuits
- icing sugar
- food colouring
- unicorn style sprinkles
- Sieve the fondant icing sugar into a large mixing bowl and add enough water to make it the right consistency for spreading on biscuits. You can add a drop of vanilla extract if you like too. It should be thin enough to drizzle but not too runny to drip off the biscuits. Follow the instructions on your packet of icing for rough measurements.
- Split the icing into four different smaller bowls and add food colouring gel to each small bowl. Only use a drop because you want the colours to stay pale and pastel shades.
- Lay each biscuit out on a flat surface and drizzle a bit of each coloured icing onto a Rich Tea biscuit. Swirl the colours together until you are happy with the look and have a colorful cookie. Be creative - you can have pastel unicorns, rainbow unicorns - anything goes! Add sprinkles and leave to set on a wire rack or baking tray lined with parchment paper. This should take 20-30 mins.
- Enjoy straight away!

How long do these unicorn biscuits keep?
These biscuits are best eaten as soon as possible, but will keep for up to two days in an airtight container. The icing tends to make the biscuit go soft if they are left for too long so don't delay in enjoying them!
