This recipe makes 2 stacks of 6 pancakes, and here’s what you’ll need:
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple food coloring
-Griddle or skillet
-Nonstick cooking spray or butter
-2 long marshmallow twists or marshmallow poles
-¼ cup dark chocolate
-Whipped Cream (you can make your own with the recipe below)
-Large zip top bag
-Pastel mini marshmallows
-2 large pink marshmallows
-Pink edible food marker
-Medium teardrop cookie cutter (optional)
Now, keep in mind that if you’re using a griddle you won’t need to use any butter or cooking spray.
Here’s what you’ll need for the vanilla whipped cream:
-1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
-Handheld or electric mixer
-Small mixing bowl
And now, here are the instructions for making the magic happen.
1.Follow the instructions on your pancake mix and make about 14 pancakes. Make sure to mix the vanilla extract into the batter.
2.Separate the pancake batter into 6 bowls, placing about a ½ cup of the batter into each one of them and add a bit of food coloring to each bowl.
3.Heat your griddle or skillet at medium heat. If you are cooking on a skillet, add a little butter or some cooking spray. Remember to use a minimum amount to prevent the pancakes from browning too much and hiding the colors.
4.Work with one color at a time and let the pancakes cook until the surface starts to bubble, then flip them and cook the other side for about 30 seconds. The key to keeping the colors vibrant is keeping the heat low.
5.Once all of your pancakes are cooked, stack them together starting with the purple and moving up to finish with the pink pancakes on top.
6.If you’re making your own whipped cream, make sure to let it chill in the freezer for 10 minutes after you whisk it.
7.Add the vanilla and cold cream to the mixing bowl and beat the mixture starting on low and working your way up to high speed
8.Continue to mix on high until soft peaks form and transfer the whipped cream to a large zip-top bag.
9.Cut off a small corner and pipe in swirls to create the mane on each pancake stack, making sure the whipped cream goes across the top of your stack so that you can stick the ears and horn into it.
10.Use a teardrop cookie cutter or kitchen scissors to cut a triangle out of each pink marshmallow, then, cut each triangle in half again to get 4 triangles.
11.Use a pink food marker to color the center of each triangle. Cut the top of each unicorn horn into a point using the kitchen scissors, and add the ears and horn to each pancake stack.
12.Make the eyelashes by melting the chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl in the microwave in 30-second intervals, at 50% power and stir well between each interval until they are completely melted.
13.Use a toothpick dipped in chocolate to draw the eyelashes onto the top of the pink pancakes.
14.Add the rainbow sprinkles and fresh berries to the manes and serve to your family.
