Ingredients for Unicorn Party Dip
This deceptively simple recipe is so delicious. You only need a handful of ingredients to create a batch of this colorful concoction.
It’s a kid-friendly recipe too. They will love to help with mixing the colors and sneaking a taste from the bowls.
- Cream cheese
- Whipped topping (like Cool Whip)
- Powdered sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Food coloring
I achieved the gorgeous coloring in my dip with only a few drops of AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste. I’ve used all types of food coloring in the past, but AmeriColor are at the top of my list. The colors are so vibrant and the consistency of the gel makes it really easy to add just a drop at a time. The colors blend quickly and easily. I highly recommend you give them a try. Tons of colors and sets are available on Amazon.
- Sprinkles. I used these Silver Star Sprinkles from Wilton. They were just too perfect for Unicorn Dip. You can find them in some stores, but I got mine from Amazon.
- Vanilla wafer cookies, graham crackers, fruit, sugar cookies or other finger food for dipping
How To Make Unicorn Party Dip
First, grab a large mixing bowl, 3 additional smaller bowls and serving bowl.
Our plan here is to make the full batch of dip in the big bowl, then divide it evenly between the other bowls for coloring.
Then we’ll add the colored mixtures directly to the serving bowl to combine and swirl into our rainbow of colors.
In the large bowl, add the cream cheese, whipped topping, powdered sugar and vanilla. U
se a hand mixer to combine the ingredients until the mixture is smooth and creamy (no cream cheese lumps!)
Next, divide the mixture evenly between all 4 bowls. Add a drop or two of food coloring to each bowl.
I used deep pink, sky blue, leaf green and violet from this AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste set.
Use a separate spoon to stir in the coloring in each bowl. If you want a more vibrant color, add only a drop of additional coloring at a time and stir well. Repeat until you achieve your desired colors.
Now grab your serving bowl. Add spoonfuls of each colored mixture into the bowl. Alternate the colors until you have used up all of the mixture.
When the serving bowl is filled to the top, carefully swirl the top layer of the dip with a spoon or knife. You don’t want to stir or the colors will start to blend. Just lightly drag or pull the knife through the dip in short strokes.
Throw some party sprinkles on the top (like the silver stars I used) and you’re all set!
