This unicorn toast is more suited to younger kiddos. It’s more unicorn-themed than actually looking like a unicorn.
The best part is that it is really easy to customize them too! You can use whatever colors you want. Then, add your favorite sprinkles.
Even though it looks like I put frosting on top of an English Muffin, I promise I did not! They are covered in colorful cream cheese. Yup! This colorful breakfast treat is actually pretty good for you.

Here’s what you’ll need from the store. The exact amounts are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Unicorn Toast Tips
Since all the exact steps are in the printable recipe card, I’ll just share a few extra tips here for you.
Use Softened Cream Cheese
Since you are going to mix food coloring into the cream cheese, you need to let the cream cheese soften first. Trying to mix cold cream cheese is very frustrating.
Use A Piping Bag
Go for some extra flair! Create your own custom work of art with a piping bag. Make fun shapes or even a unicorn face on the toast.
Have Fun With Sprinkles
There are tons of different kinds of sprinkles out there! Have fun and use a bunch of different kinds.
Don’t Mix The Colors
Apply separate dollops on your toast and with a butter knife, spread and blend (but don’t mix) the colors.
Decorate With Fruit
To make the unicorn toast even healthier, add some fruit on top! Red strawberries, mandarin oranges, and blueberries are just a few fun options you can use.
Above all, just have fun with this breakfast idea for kids!
Easy Unicorn Toast
- 4 ounces Cream Cheese softened
- 2 tsp Sugar
- 2 gell food colorings
- 1 English Muffin toasted
- In one of your bowls, mix together your cream cheese and sugar. Once combined, divide the mixture into all three bowls and give each one a different color. (In our case, we left one white, the other pink and the other, yellow.)
- Apply separate dollops on your toast and with a butter knife, spread and blend (but don’t mix) the colors.
- Apply sprinkles as desired and enjoy the magic.

This is a great idea! It looks like a sweet cookie but it’s better than that. I would have never thought of using food coloring in cream cheese. I may have to try that with my next cheesecake!

This is very creative. Sometimes it’s hard getting my younger siblings to eat (kids are so picky! lol). They love getting artsy and playing with their food, so this would be a great little snack for them.
That’s a cute idea to make an ordinary breakfast a little more special. With my boys, I’d probably have to do camouflage toast. LOL
