This Unicorn Chip cookies recipe is packed with vanilla goodness, using Nestle Unicorn Chips (vanilla candy morsels) and a secret ingredient. It makes a wonderfully soft cookie that almost melts in your mouth.
Using the pink and blue Nestle Unicorn candy morsels adds even more vanilla flavor with fun new colors.
Nestle Toll House Unicorn Vanilla Morsels
These are the cute little vanilla morsels I’ve used for this recipe. No, they do not taste like unicorn poo. Well, maybe they do. How do we know? Hmmmmm….
According to the package, though, the flavor is vanilla. Vanilla flavored candy morsels in fun pink and blue colors. I think these could also be worked into a baby shower recipe. Perfect colors for it.
Yes! If you’re unable to find Nestle Unicorn Chips, try using white chocolate chips instead

The secret ingredient that takes this cookie recipe to an extreme level of goodness is vanilla pudding mix! You won’t believe the difference.
The pudding mix adds intense vanilla flavor and makes the cookies more moist. Delicious!
Making Uniform Cookies
You’ll make nicely sized unicorn chip cookies with a cookie scoop. Using a cookie scoop makes perfectly sized little mounds of cookie dough. It looks nice to have a stack of cookies of the same size, of course. But, there is another purpose as well.
It’s best to have your cookies of a uniform size so everything finishes baking at the same time so you have all soft and chewy cookies instead of some soft and some crunchy.
Tools Can Make a Difference Too
I learned a new thing when making these cookies. Not all sheet pans are created equally! Rather than wait until the baking sheets cooled, I got out one of the older cookie sheets.
I was very surprised by the differences in the cookies.
I used this sheet pan which allows for 18 cookies each. Mom has two of them. She bought the biggest that would easily fit in our oven.
Don’t forget to measure your oven! One of those pans is really big and didn’t fit in the oven at all. It sure would be fun to have an oven that size, though!
These cookies in the photographs here are a beautiful cookie and they melted perfectly, spreading out nicely, producing cookies a little bigger than 2 ½”. They’re soft and chewy and wonderful.
It’s the vanilla pudding in the cookies that really makes the difference.
Surprisingly, the cookies made on the older cookie sheet didn’t melt and then just sort of sat there until they cooked too long on the outside but not fully cooked on the inside. I never would have made this connection, if this hadn’t happened. Those cookies didn’t get photographed! ha!
That’s an example of what NOT to do, right?!
From now on, I’m going to be certain to use the higher quality sheets, even if it means that I need to be more patient.
