How to Make Unicorn Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Yields: 12 servings


  • 8 oz. package of strawberries (about 12)
  • 4 oz. of white chocolate melting wafers
  • Candy corn
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • Luster dust: pink and gold colors


  • Wax paper
  • Toothpick
  • Thin paint brush
  • Black food marker
  • Electric chocolate melting pot or double boiler
    • If you do not have a double boiler or electric melting pot, no worries! All you will need is a small pot for the bottom, and a heat resistant bowl to fit over the top of the pot


  1. Rinse strawberries well. Use paper towels to pat the strawberries dry.
  2. As your strawberries dry, it’s time to start melting your chocolate!
    • Using an electric melting pot: plug it into an outlet and pour chocolate wafers into the pot. Stir occasionally
    • Using a double boiler or pot: Fill the bottom of the double boiler (or pot) with water. Fill the top of the double boiler (or bowl) with chocolate wafers. Use a low set flame on the stovetop and stir occasionally.
      • Note: Do not boil the water beforehand!
  1. Dip the strawberries into the white chocolate then place them on wax paper to cool.
  2. Next, take a candy corn and dip it 3/4ths into the white chocolate covering all the orange. Immediately press the candy corn onto the strawberry and hold it for about 10 seconds until it’s properly adhered – this is the unicorn’s horn!
    • You can also use the tip of a waffle cone if you’d like!
  3. Using a small bowl, add some gold luster dust, dilute it with 1-3 drops of water and stir well. Use the paintbrush to fully cover the horn.
  4. For the hair, use the rest of your melted chocolate and put it in a triangle shape in front of the horn. Immediately put sprinkles on top to let it stick.
  5. For the eyes, take circle sprinkles and draw in the eyes with the edible marker. Use your melted chocolate and a toothpick to adhere it to the unicorn.
  6. Use the black food marker to draw eyelashes on the unicorn and voila!

Warning: your magical unicorns will be so cute you won’t want to eat them!
