Unicorn Poop Chocolates - Gluten Free -

Hi, it's Jo from An Easy Gluten Free Life here and last night, my favourite Unicorn Oolie stopped by for a visit. Although it was great to see her, I'm afraid she left behind something not so pleasant...or so I thought! 

 

Make your little (or big one's) day with a bag of Bubblegum flavoured, brightly coloured, rainbow inspired Unicorn Poop! Simple and lots of fun to make, these taste like everything you ever wanted as a child in one bite. 

 

You will need a bottle of fun flavouring and either food grade acetate or a wire cooling rack to make this Unicorn Poop. I used Bubblegum flavouring from Foodie Flavours, but you could just as easily use Strawberry, Candy Floss, Raspberry or anything that takes your fancy! Just this one time, I would avoid natural colourings as they can affect the taste of the chocolate coating. If you are struggling to find suitable decorations, have a look at my guide to Gluten Free Sprinkles and Decorations https://www.glutenfreelivingmadeeasy.co.uk/single-post/2017/11/12/Gluten-Free-Sprinkles-and-Cake-Decorations
