First of all, make the unicorn horns. Take pea sized amounts of the sugar modelling paste & roll into balls

Roll into thin sausages

Set the unicorn horns aside to set.

Meanwhile; decorate the marshmallows. Start by using the edible  art pen to draw the eyes

Insert the paper straws in the bottom of each marshmallow

Melt the candy melts in the microwave in 20 second intervals until completely melted and smooth. Then, using a small paintbrush, paint two little mounds of the melted candy melts on top of the marshmallows where you want to place the ears.

For the ears, I used the little silver hearts from the sprinkle mix

Paint another little bit of the candy melts in the middle just in front of the ears and attach the unicorn horn

Paint a line of candy melts in front of the horn and slightly down just above the eyes and down the back of the unicorns head as well

Add the sprinkles to the areas you have painted with the candy melts to create the unicorn hair and voila! You have the cutest lil unicorn marshmallow pops!
