Unicorn Crunch Mousse Cups

I finally jumped on the unicorn trend and made these magical unicorn crunch mousse cups!  They might be the cutest desserts ever! They only take around 5 minutes to prepare (plus 2 hours set time) and they are so easy to make.

 

  • The sprinkles pictured are from Twinkle Sprinkles.
  • Biscuits used are coles brand custard vanilla creams for $1 a packet.
  • Cups used are plastic wine glasses in the party section at coles, but you can use any type you like. Plastic shot glasses would work perfecly for kids parties.
