My hot chocolate recipe collection is growing fast and furiously thanks to the awesome Hot Chocolate Extravaganza that I’m running on my blog these days. Whether it’s this Three-Ingredient Creamy Homemade White Hot Chocolate, or this citrusy Orange Hot Chocolate that you first choose to make, I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
So let’s get started with this beautiful Unicorn Hot Chocolate which is yet another hot chocolate recipe that I’m posting during the Hot Chocolate Extravaganza at I Knead to Eat.
I have a 4 year old daughter who’s totally obsessed with all things unicorns. So obviously when I sat down to plan out this Hot Chocolate Extravaganza, I knew there had to be a Unicorn Hot Chocolate.

About this Unicorn Hot Chocolate
This Unicorn Hot Chocolate is based on my recipe for Three-Ingredient Creamy Homemade White Hot Chocolate, and it’s super easy to make.
We start off with homemade white hot chocolate, and add a few drops of red food coloring to make it this gorgeous shade of pink.
And then begins the fun part, the toppings!
Toppings for Unicorn Hot Chocolate
- Mini marshmallows
- Colorful sprinkles (I used pink & purple hearts and blue & white snow flakes)
- Pink cotton candy
Notes and Tips for this Unicorn Hot Chocolate
- Use good quality white chocolate as that’s the flavor base of this Unicorn Hot Chocolate. I prefer Lindt or Godiva. Please do not use white chocolate chips as they have added stabilizers so they do not melt as well.
- When adding the chopped white chocolate to the hot milk, make sure to keep whisking so that they white chocolate melts properly. This may take a couple of minutes as white chocolate takes sometime to melt.
- For the pink color of this Unicorn Hot Chocolate, I used red gel food coloring, as it only takes a few drops to reach the desired shade of pink.
- This Unicorn Hot Chocolate can be stored up to 3 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container such as a mason jar.
Unicorn Hot Chocolate
