It’s a whimsical blend of shortbread cookie and vanilla fudge stripes—with plenty of colorful sprinkles—and it’s got a really (really) long name. Say hello to Keebler’s Unicorn Fudge Stripes Magic Cupcake Cookies!
It’s a name you’ll want to remember because the cupcake-flavored unicorn cookies are already going fast. They are magical, after all, right down to their fudgy, crunchy finish, making you reach a for…a friend to hide the rest of the package. I certainly can’t eat just one, and I’m betting you sprinkles over stripes you can’t either!
So far, the latest creation from Ernie and the Elves has created quite a stir since it left the Hollow Tree, with limited quantities of the unicorn cookies making an appearance on select Kroger and Walmart shelves. Provided you can find it, a bag of the “special batch” treats will cost you roughly $2.00 Not bad for a creative little snack that will have you dreaming up ways to weave more unicorn-related reverie into the every day.
Taste of Home
At some point that Keebler package will be empty, and then it’s your magical duty not to break the hearts of those who need their unicorn fix. This recipe for cookie unicorn manes was meant for such moments. Make it as the show-stopping centerpiece for a party themed around this mythical creature, or because you know, it’s a random weeknight.
As to how it ranks against the original Fudge Shoppe Fudge Stripes cookie? You be the judge.
Psst! Fudgy, crunchy shortbread goodness can come right from your own kitchen, too. For a Keebler-inspired treat—whether for your Valentine or anyone you’re sweet on—try these Shortbread Hearts. Love at first bite, indeed.
