How to Make a Unicorn Cheesecake

If you love all things unicorns, you will love this recipe! I was so excited to make it and the end result was simply amazing.

I’m not going to pretend that I came up with this recipe because I didn’t. In fact, to make my Unicorn Cheesecake, I used two different recipes. Now why would I use two different recipes? Because they were prepared differently. While one of them didn’t bake, the other one did bake the Cheesecake causing it to be ready in just a few hours.

Ingredients

  • 2 8 oz blocks cream cheese, softened
  • pink, yellow, green, blue, and purple food coloring
  • 1 store-bought graham cracker crust
  • Sprinkles, for decorating
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 c. heavy cream
  • Whipped cream, for serving
  • 4 large eggs

 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 325°F
  • In a large bowl beat Cream Cheese and Sugar for 3 minutes, until it is smooth and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla, salt and heavy cream. Beat on medium until smooth (2-3 minutes). Add in 1 egg at a time, beating between each egg.
  • Divide the mixture into 4 bowls and add different food coloring into each bowl.

  • Add spoonfuls of the different color mixture to the graham cracker crust, changing colors until all of the mixture has been used up.

 

  • Make sure to use a stick or fork to mix the colors in the graham cracker to make it look more magical

 

  • Place the cheesecake pan into a roasting dish and fill the roasting dish (or whatever you are using) with boiling water.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until set (it should still jiggle slightly 2 inches from the edge)
  • Turn off the oven and keep the oven door ajar to let the cake cool (leave it in for at least an hour) – This helps keep the cheesecake crack free.
  • Cover the cheesecake and refrigerate for 4 hours (I did mine for 2 hours and it came out great!)
  • Serve with whipped cream and sprinkles
