This delightful twist on the classic charcuterie board combines traditional savory meats and cheeses with a touch of whimsy and magic. It's the perfect addition to any holiday party or gathering, whether you're hosting friends at home or bringing a dish to a potluck.
But what exactly is a snow globe charcuterie snack? Simply put, it's a creative and playful take on the popular charcuterie board that resembles a miniature winter wonderland scene inside a clear glass bowl or jar. The board typically features an assortment of cured meats, cheeses, crackers, fruits, nuts, and other snacks arranged in layers to look like falling snowflakes or trees covered in snow.
Not only does this snack offer an impressive visual presentation that will have your guests snapping pictures for their Instagram feed, but it also allows for endless customization options based on personal preferences and dietary restrictions.
Traditionally made with meats such as prosciutto, salami, and pepperoni paired with various types of cheese such as brie, gouda, cheddar, or blue cheese – this snack can easily be adapted for vegetarians by using alternative protein sources like roasted vegetables or plant-based.
The advantage of this appetizer is that everyone gets their own portion and can move around with it. This is very convenient if your party is in buffet format. In addition, nothing will spoil or get weathered. So you can prepare snow globes in advance and store them in the refrigerator. For the recipe you will need deli meats, cheeses with rich flavor, dried fruits, nuts, chocolate and salty or neutral crackers. For the packaging, we used a dome-shaped disposable cake mold. these molds are sold in stores for pastry chefs.

2. Fold each round of salami in half. Join the halves in pairs. Wrap the heart halves around the core in the shape of a rose. Press firmly.
3. Cut dried apricots in half, not all the way through. Fill with cream cheese and sprinkle with nuts.
