If you’ve never made homemade meringue before it is easier than you think! Once you have the hang of it you can make these fun mermaid meringue bites any color and/or flavor you want. These are kind of a unicorn poop, mermaid, or rainbow color scheme but would be perfect for a gender neutral baby shower too since it combines both pink and blue. If you’re throwing a mermaid birthday party these are perfect, if your theme is purple then make them purple with maybe a grape flavor to them. The possibilities are endless and they’re a really light and sweet dessert you can pop right into your mouth.

Rainbow Meringue

What’s Needed

Similar to our chocolate meringue cookies but without the cocoa. NO cream of tartar used either which is something you likely don’t have at home.
