My daughter loves all things unicorns. So I decided to make her a special after-school snack. A big cup of unicorn-themed vanilla pudding. This was so easy to make and put a big smile on her face! Find the recipe to my easy vanilla pudding recipe below!
I made this with homemade vanilla pudding but you could use a store-bought box mix or vanilla pudding cup.
To make the different colors of pudding, I used gel food coloring. I placed the vanilla pudding into three separate bowls and used a toothpick to place the food coloring into the bowls until I got the pudding color I wanted.

I then layered the pudding into the cup using a spoon, being careful not to get the pudding on the sides of the cup as I was spooning it in.
