Sparkle Unicorn Milkshake

Not sure if you've heard, but Starbucks seems to have this new addition to their menu - the Unicorn Frappuccino. Sounds super fancy and it's also quite beautiful. Unfortunately, I am not a Frappuccino kind of girl... but, I would take a milkshake any day! This is how my Cute Sparkle Unicorn Milkshake was born.

Before you whip up the milkshake, you need to prepare the glasses first. Have fun with it and remember that they don't have to be perfect. Just like unicorns, each Unicorn Milkshake is unique 😉

Melt down some blue candy melts in the microwave. Then, using a spoon or a squeeze bottle, drip the melted blue goodness along the inside of the glass and let it just drip down. Easy enough, right? Next, dip the rim of the glass into a bowl of the melted candy melts so it covers about 1/8-1/4 inch of the rim. Sprinkle a bunch of colorful sprinkles over the candy melt and press lightly to make sure they stick well. Place the finished glasses in the fridge or freezer to chill while you prepare the milkshake.
