Edible Glitter

This isn’t so much a recipe, as it is a fun little craft! Everyone that knows me knows I love things that sparkle! I’m all about sequins, glitter, and shiny things. Even on food!

This is edible glitter I made using 2 easy peasy ingredients! For this I used xylitol. Xylitol is a natural sweetener that tastes like sugar, but has 40% less calories. It’s most often used for diabetics, but I use it all the time because I like the taste and the large crystals. It’s perfect for sprinkling on desserts and making things sparkle!

You can put it on anything that calls for a little decoration or some extra sweetness šŸ™‚

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1/2 cup of xylitol (find me at Amazon, health food stores, or Wegmans)
  • food coloring

Start by placing your xylitol in a mason jar or something that has a cover and will stay on tight.

I love Mason Jars. So versatile!

Place a few drops of food coloring in the jar. I did about 4 drops for a bright pink color

Give it a little swirl with a spoon. Then place the lid on the jar and shake it up good!

I also tried doing it with stevia in the raw and it did not work, so don’t waste your stevia! Needs to be some type of crystal!

Happy eating… sparkling?
