Pinteresting: Snow Cream

Yesterday I showed you how much snow I had.  So today I wanna show you what to do with it!  SNOW CREAM!  This fat girl and foodie loves anything sweet so of course I had to make some!  Fortunately, I always have these 3 ingredients in my house so it was super easy to make!


This recipe makes enough for 2 servings - or a really big bowl for yourself!

Original Pin: HERE

INGREDIENTS NEEDED:
4 cups Snow
1/2 cup Milk
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 tbs Vanilla Extract
Chocolate syrup (if desired)


DIRECTIONS:
1.  Collect some CLEAN snow.  I have 3 dogs so of course I had to venture out a little further to not get any yellow snow.  Also try to find fluffy, powdery snow instead of the kind that has refrozen into ice chunks.


2.  Mix sugar, milk, and extract in a small bowl.

3.  Add 4 cups snow to mixture and mix carefully.  Note that the more you mix it, the more it will melt and lose texture.


4.  Add garnishes like chocolate syrup, sprinkles, and/or whipped cream!  If you prefer chocolate snow cream, mix in some chocolate syrup and stir!


ENJOY!

Add a small amount of lemon or peppermint extract for a twist!   I think this recipe doesn't make the snow cream very sweet, but adding the chocolate syrup made it perfect!

  2. We actually did this a few years ago when we lived in North Arkansas, it turned out great. We added a touch more vanilla to help with the sweetening, but I like the chocolate idea so much more.

  3. I tried to make a slushy out of snow and Kool-Aid when I was a kid... this looks like a more sophisticated grown-up version of something sweet! hhaha
