Buckwheat Krispies treats use buckwheat puffs instead of traditional rice puffs for a more nutritious dessert option that tastes just as good. Sprinkle some pink glitter on top of the Buckwheat Krispies, and your pink glitter treats will make your dessert table shine bright! Buckwheats are much higher in protein and fiber. Also, it’s high in the essential amino acids lysine and arginine. Many people consider it to be a superfood because it improves heart health and help manage diabetes!

Pink Glitter Meringues
3 Large egg whites, at room temperature
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
1/4 Tsp cream of tartar
1/2 Tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Edible pink glitter
Step 1. Preheat oven to 215 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Step 2. In the mixer bowl, add egg whites and whisk on medium-low. Add in the cream of tartar, vanilla, and salt. After the whites begin to foam, bump up the mixer to medium speed and gradually start adding in the sugar.
Step 3. Add in all the sugar and beat until the whites begin to form soft peaks. After the whites begin to hold their shape, bump up the mixer to medium-high speed until they hold firm peaks.
Step 4. Fill the piping bag with meringue. Gently squeeze the piping bag to push out any air pockets before getting started. Pipe meringue kisses.
Step 5. Depending on the size of your meringue, bake for 60-80 minutes, or until the outside is crisp and the inside is dry yet chewy. Turn the oven off, crack the door open, and let the meringues cool completely in the oven.
Step 6. Place a wooden stick in each meringue. Using a soft brush, apply some edible glue on top of the meringues, then dip into the glitter.
