Dive into the enchanting world of desserts with this Unicorn Rice Krispy Cheesecake, a vibrant and delightful twist on traditional cheesecake recipes. Featuring a unique Rice Krispy crust and layered with colorful cheesecake filling, this dessert is perfect for adding a magical touch to any celebration.


For the Crust:
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 10 oz bag of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispy cereal
For the Cheesecake:
  • 4 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, softened (32 oz total)
  • 2 (14 oz) cans of condensed milk (28 oz total)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • Food coloring (various colors)
  • Sprinkles for decoration


  1. Prepare the Crust:
    • In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir continuously until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
    • Remove from heat and immediately stir in the Rice Krispy cereal until it is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.
    • Grease a 9-inch springform pan. Transfer the cereal mixture to the pan, pressing it firmly into the bottom and up the sides to form a crust. Place in the freezer to set while preparing the filling.
  2. Cheesecake Filling:
    • In a stand mixer, blend the cream cheese, condensed milk, vanilla extract, and lemon juice until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps.
    • Divide the mixture into separate bowls, one for each color of food coloring you plan to use. Tint each bowl with your chosen colors to achieve vibrant shades.
  3. Assembly:
    • Remove the crust from the freezer. Carefully pour the first color of the cheesecake mixture into the crust, spreading it evenly.
    • Freeze each layer for 20-30 minutes to set before adding the next, ensuring that each layer is firm enough to support the next.
    • Continue layering the different colors, making sure each is set before proceeding.
  4. Final Steps:
    • After adding the final layer, refrigerate the cheesecake overnight to ensure it is completely set and the flavors meld together.
    • Before serving, decorate the top with sprinkles or other desired toppings to enhance the magical unicorn theme.


  • Cheesecake Firmness: For a firmer cheesecake, consider dissolving 1 package of unflavored gelatin in 1 cup of boiling water and mixing it into the cheesecake batter.
  • Crust Formation: Use the back of a measuring cup to press the Rice Krispy mixture firmly into the pan, which helps create a more stable and neat crust.
  • Vibrant Layers: Add food coloring gradually and mix thoroughly to ensure each layer is distinct and vibrant. This adds to the visual appeal when sliced.
