Homemade Edible Sugar Snow Globe (A Christmas Craft)

For years the Gingerbread House has been the 'must-do edible holiday craft'. But this season, you have a new option. Let me present... "The Edible Sugar Snow Globe"!


Don't get me wrong, I love Gingerbread houses. But sometimes the magic of a Gingerbread house gets lost in the messiness. This project however... no mess! I found the recipe on  Imperial Sugar's website (tons of activities, printables, recipes and crafts over there) 

Here is what you need to make your own Edible Sugar Snow Globe. 

Supplies:
  • Glass dome container with a lid (be sure the opening of the container is large enough for your hand as you place items)
  • Candy, marshmallows and/or cake pops
  • Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • Toothpicks
  • Foam (for globe base)  





Directions:
  1. Cut a small piece of foam to use as the base for your decorations and place in the bottom of the jar.
  2. Pour enough granulated sugar in to cover the foam block.
  3. To decorate our edible snow globe, we used Peeps brand Christmas tree and snowman; held in place with toothpicks. Gently push the toothpick into the bottom of the marshmallow figure, leaving enough toothpick visible to insert into the foam block under the sugar.
  4. We added gumballs around the edge and a mini-candy cane, but you could use any of your favorite candies.
Get creative! Decorated sugar cookies, brownie cakes pops, candy cane sleighs...  Just be sure that you don't shake this sweet snow globe or you'll create a sugar snow storm!
