    STEP 3

    Fill the jar with water up to about 2 cm below the rim. Finally, add 5 g of craft snow and 1 tsp of glycerine. The glycerine will stop the snow from sinking down too quickly and make it look like slowly falling snow. Screw the lid tightly onto the jar and turn upside down (lid side down).

    Your Nutella® snow globe is complete! Now all you have to do is to shake it. Make sure the lid is watertight.

    Note: if it’s left to stand for a long time, the liquid inside may become contaminated. Don’t allow children to play with the snow globe unattended, due to the risk of contamination, or the jar breaking. Do not drink the contents.
