These edible Snow globes make such a great Christmas dessert. It looks like the Christmas figurines are standing in the snow and that they’re covered in snow. But it’s actually white chocolate mousse and powdered sugar. On this page I’m sharing the recipe for this Snow Globes Christmas dessert.
I think these edible snow globes look so cute. It’s a great dessert if kids are joining at the table, but I bet adults will love them too. I put in KitKat Icons, chocolate figurines shaped like Holiday related objects like Christmas ornaments and Christmas packages. They’ve also got KitKat Santa’s that are slightly bigger.
You can of course put any kind of edible figurine in these ‘snow globes’. Gingerbread man cookies are also great, or small gingerbread houses.
You can make these edible snow globes a day before and just put in the figurines on the evening itself.

Recipe Christmas dessert Snow Globes
Ingredients (serves 4):
80 ml milk
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon sugar
250 ml whipped cream
100 grams white chocolate
Edible Christmas figurines of your choice
Warm the milk in a sauce pan. Whisk the egg yolk with the sugar until it’s light and creamy. Little by little, add the warm milk. Stir well while you add the milk. Pour the mixture back in the saucepan and let it set on low fire.
Finely chop the white chocolate. When the milk mixture is thick (please note that this might take 10-15 minutes), take the pan of the fire and add the white chocolate. Stir well so that the chocolate melts.
Cool down this mixture. The fastest is by putting the sauce pan in a bowl of ice cold water.
In the meantime, mix the whipped cream until white peaks have formed.
Add the cooled down white chocolate little by little and stir with a wooden spatula.
Divide the white chocolate mousse over 4 glasses and let it set in the fridge. You want them to set for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
Right before serving, put the edible Christmas figurines in the glasses and dust with powdered sugar.
