How To Make Unicorn Poop Cookies

  1. Mix up the sugar cookie dough according to the package.
  2. Split the dough equally into bowls. You need one bowl for each color, so if you use four dyes like we did, then you will need four bowls.
  3. Stir the dye into the bowl and let it chill in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  4. Take out your dough and  split it up into cookie sized pieces. Now you can sort of mix the dough together so it looks like a rainbow swirl. Don’t overmix, or you will end up mixing all the pretty colors together.
  5. Roll it out into a snake and spin it around until it looks like a piece of poop.
  6. Cook according to package directions and add the sprinkles!

Yum!
