Homemade Snow Globes Recipe
- 2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons water
- 4-1/2 teaspoons meringue powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 6 sugar cookies (about 3-1/2 inches)
- Assorted decorations: miniature marshmallows, orange and brown jimmies, Fruit Roll-Ups, spearmint leaves, peppermint candies, edible glitter and holiday sprinkles
- 3 clear plastic ornaments (3 inches)
- In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, water, meringue powder and cream of tartar; beat on low speed just until combined. Beat on high for 4-5 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Cover frosting with a damp cloth between uses. If necessary, beat again on high speed to restore texture.
- Working with one cookie at a time, spread 2 tablespoons frosting over the top of cookie.
- For snowman, cut two miniature marshmallows in half. Attach three halves with a small amount of frosting. Decorate face with jimmies. For scarf, trim a thin 1-1/2-in. strip from a Fruit Roll-Up. Shape a toboggan from a strip of Fruit Roll-Up; attach toboggan to cookie. Attach snowman to toboggan. Add spearmint leaves for trees.
- With a dab of frosting, attach four peppermint candies to the bottom of each cookie. Let stand overnight to dry completely.
- To assemble, separate ornaments into halves. Working with one cookie at a time, spread edge of ornament half with frosting. Place 1 teaspoon edible glitter and 1 teaspoon holiday sprinkles inside ornament; carefully invert decorated cookie onto ornament half, sealing edges. Use frosting and a star tip to pipe a decorative edge around globe. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 6 snow globes.

These were totally a hit. I used them as placemarkers for my Christmas dinner table and put name tags inside. Couldn't find spearmint trees, so I found some suckers that were small enough to fit perfectly inside the dome.
@grannyof11 It says 3 clear plastic ornaments, separated into halves
Made these last year with my teenage neice, to give to the younger cousins, and we had a ball. A little time consuming but but well worth the results. Very impressive looking!
You need 6 half domes not 3
Haven't made these yet but can't wait! I have gingerbread flavored gingermen marshmallows that I plan on using for the snowmen instead. I have a 1 year old grandson so will be careful what I use for decor and to remove candies he can't have.
