9 Days til’ Christmas Countdown: Edible snowglobes make super cute decorations, awesome gifts or party favors during the winter holidays. They work just like real snow globes but the best part is you can eat the stuff inside!
What you’ll need:
- Holiday sugar cookie cutouts – in different holiday shapes, like christmas trees, gingerbread men, stockings
- Round sugar cookies
- royal icing
- paint brush
- edible glitter
- mason jars (size depends on size of cookie)
Bake your holiday shaped and round sugar cookies according to the instructions. Add icing to your holiday shaped sugar cookies first and allow to dry. Add a thick layer of royal icing to your round sugar cookies – these will serve as your holiday shaped sugar cookie stand. Stick your holiday cookies into the icing firmly and allow to dry.
Gently brush a clear gel over your cookie creations to serve as a sticky base for the edible glitter to stick. Sprinkle each cookie with edible glitter. Using the inside of the lid of the mason jar, use a dab of royal icing and stick your cookie creation on top to hold it in place, allow to dry.
Take your mason jar and add a few tbsps of edible glitter. Gently put the mason jar together. Don’t completely flip over the mason jar until the lid with your cookie creation is securely inside of it or else you will have an edible glitter mess all over your table. Gently shake your edible holiday snowglobe and watch it become a sparkly winter wonderland! Be sure to tell your guests to turn it over before opening it!
