  • cup sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup candy sprinkles, unicorn inspired colours - pink, blue, purple, yellow, etc.
  • 1 cup mini candy coated chocolate chips, various colours
  • 1/4 teaspoon Wilton purple food colouring
  • 1/4 cup course white sugar
  • 1/4 cup course pink sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat liner and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg yolks one at a time and beat into the mixture.
  • Next, beat in the mint extract, food colouring, and salt.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. On low speed, allow the wet ingredients to slowly incorporate the dry.
  • Next, stir in the candy sprinkles and mini candy coated chocolate chips.
  • In a small, shallow bowl, mix together the pink and white course sugar. Set aside.
  • Use a small scoop to portion the cookie dough. Roll the tops of the cookie dough mounds into the sugar mixture.
  • Place the cookie dough onto the baking sheet and bake for exactly 12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.


If you want a deeper purple colour, add a drop or two more of the food colouring. Purple was just a personal choice - you could always go for pink!
