Easter isn’t far away and you know what that means – plenty of bunny, chicken and egg-themed dishes! Easter rainbow unicorn toast is a tasty breakfast or snack for kids. This Easter treat is colourful cream cheese toast with sprinkles and the kids will love it.
Colourful sprinkles and cream cheese pair with thick toast slices to make rainbow toast. Easter rainbow unicorn toast is sweet and tasty and makes a great start to the day.
Easter Rainbow Unicorn Toast Ingredients
This colourful cream cheese toast recipe only calls for four different ingredients so I’m sure you have all or most of them to hand already. You will need bread to make the toast and thick-cut bread is the sturdiest so I would choose that. You can also use a medium-cut loaf or even cut your own.
A block of cream cheese is another main ingredient in this recipe. But remember to take it out of the refrigerator about half an hour before making rainbow toast. This is because cream cheese spreads easier when it is at room temperature.
Next up you are going to need food colouring gels or dyes in any four pastel shades you prefer. You can use any colours you want and you don’t have to use pastel shades for the sprinkles and cream cheese. Go for brighter colours if you prefer. Finally you will need sprinkles to decorate this breakfast or snack for kids.
How to Make Rainbow Toast
The first step in making this Easter treat is toasting the bread. Meanwhile, divide the cream cheese into four separate containers and add a drop or two of food colouring to each one.
Mix the food colouring in and, if you want a bolder shade, add more and mix again. Bear in mind it’s easier to add more colour if needed than to add too much and end up with a colour that’s too dark.
If you want to, you can add another flavour to the cream cheese such as vanilla extract for example. Almond extract or orange extract would also be good.
Spread one cream cheese mixture at a time over the toast and then add the sprinkles on top. Easter rainbow unicorn toast is best served as soon as it’s made while it’s still hot.
Rainbow Toast: Not Just for Easter!
Although using pastel shades makes this colourful cream cheese toast a great Easter treat, it’s too good to save for only one a year.
Try pink and red for a Valentine’s Day take on this breakfast or snack for kids. Green would be great for St Patrick’s Day. And then you have red and green for Christmas, orange and black for Halloween, or any other variations you can come up with.
Sprinkles come in various shapes, sizes and colours and there are certainly plenty of different kinds to choose from. The pastel sprinkle shades do look especially pretty for Easter though.
Sprinkles and Cream Cheese Toast FAQs
Well you could, but the toast will get a bit soggy so it’s best to serve these as soon as they’re ready. Looking for something you can prepare in advance? Try these Easter sugar cookies with sprinkles.
Since this is a sweet recipe, you probably want to avoid savoury kinds like garlic and herb! However, you can use fruit flavoured cream cheese or the plain kind. Whipped cream cheese is good too if you like that light, fluffy consistency. I find that full-fat cream cheese tastes better than other kinds but again, feel free to use any type.
Easter rainbow unicorn toast is easy to tweak. If you like, you can swap the sprinkles for slices of fresh fruit. Banana, apple, peach, raisins, and strawberries are just some options. You can also use wholegrain bread instead of white or reduced-fat cream cheese. So really you can tweak every ingredient to make your own preferred version of Easter rainbow unicorn toast.
