24 pieces

Some practice required 40 Minutes



for the recipe Unicorn Cookie Bars

Cookie Base:

400 g unsalted butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 tsp Queen Natural Vanilla Extract
1 egg yolk
2 cups plain flour
½ cup self raising flour
1 pinch salt
Dr. Oetker Polka Dots


125 g unsalted butter , softened
300 g icing sugar
1 tsp Queen Unicorn Dream Flavour for Icing
4 tbsp cream
Queen Food Colour Gel in Yellow, Red and Blue
Dr. Oetker Hundreds & Thousands
Dr. Oetker Polka Dots
Dr. Oetker Sugar Strands





Preheat oven to 180ºC and line a slice tin with baking paper.


Cream together butter, sugar and Vanilla Extract until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk and mix until combined. Mix through sifted flours and salt until just combined and fold through Polka Dots. The mix will resemble a very soft and sticky cookie dough.


Press dough into prepared slice tin. Use the back of a spoon to smooth mix into tin. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes until the edges of base are golden brown and top is lightly golden. Allow to cool in the tin, the centre should sink a little as the base cools down, almost like a brownie.


While cookie base cools, make icing. Cream butter until pale. Stir in sifted icing sugar, then beat until well combined and mix is light and fluffy. Add Strawb’ry & Cream Flavour and mix until combined. Add cream, one tablespoon at a time, mixing well until smooth and spreadable.


Split icing into four bowls. Leave one portion of the icing white. Add one drop of Yellow Food Colour Gel to one bowl and mix well. Add one drop of Red to one bowl and mix well. Add two drops of Red, and one drop of Blue to final bowl, mixing well to create violet.


With base still in slice tin, randomly dollop different colours of icing over the top and swirl together using a palette knife or butter knife. Sprinkle generously with sprinkles before icing sets. Once set, remove from tin and slice into squares.
