Adorned with unicorn sprinkles, these bites are as magical to look at as they are to eat.


  • 1 box (15.25 oz) funfetti strawberry cake mix with candy bits (unicorn cake mix)
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons unicorn sprinkles (or multi-colored sprinkles)
  • 1 cup pink candy melts
  • 1 cup purple candy melts
  • 1 cup blue candy melts
  • 1 cup yellow candy melts
  • Optional: ⅓ cup additional unicorn sprinkles for decoration


  1. Prepare the Cake Mix:
    • Place the dry cake mix in a medium heat-safe bowl. Microwave in two 30-second intervals, stirring after each. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Mixture:
    • In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer on medium-high speed to beat the cream cheese until smooth, about 1½ to 2 minutes.
    • Add the cooled cake mix and 3 tablespoons of sprinkles to the cream cheese. Mix until well incorporated.
    • Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  3. Form the Bites:
    • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • Use a 1-tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the cheesecake dough. Roll the dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Melt the Candy Melts:
    • Place each color of candy melts in separate small heat-safe bowls. Microwave each in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each, until completely melted.
  5. Coat the Bites:
    • Roll each cheesecake bite in one of the melted candy colors. Use a fork to tap off excess coating and a toothpick to gently place the bites back onto the baking sheet.
    • While the coating is still wet, sprinkle with unicorn sprinkles.
  6. Set the Coating:
    • Allow the coating to harden completely before serving.


  • Ensure the cream cheese is at room temperature to avoid lumps in the mixture.
  • Let the cheesecake bites sit overnight in the refrigerator before coating if you have time for a firmer set.
  • If the candy melts thicken too much during coating, reheat in the microwave for 15-second intervals until smooth.
