On a gloomy winter’s day, a cup of rich hot chocolate is a great way to warm up the body and the soul. Now, Cosmopolitan reports that Joanna Czikalla, owner of the Crème and Sugar dessert parlor in Anaheim, California, has found a way to make the seasonal treat even more comforting. As you can see from the photo above, her unicorn hot chocolate is a fairy tale in a mug.
Though it looks like it’s brewed by munchkins somewhere over the rainbow, the drink is made with ingredients that can be found in most grocery stores. Pink food dye gives white hot chocolate its magical shade, and rainbow marshmallows and fancy sprinkles (which Czikalla calls “unicorn mix”) add a finishing touch of whimsy.
Picture-perfect dessert drinks are currently all the rage. Earlier in the year, Black Tap Burgers & Beer in Manhattan sent ripples of envy across the web when its over-the-top milkshakes went viral. Now that Crème and Sugar has caught the internet’s attention, you can expect the cafe to be crowded for the foreseeable future. While you wait out the lines, enjoy a visual feast of the best unicorn hot chocolate photos Instagram has to offer:
