Snow Cream Recipe-Snow Day Fun
Have you ever had snow cream? I don’t know who invented it but, I want to kiss them! I want a snow making machine so I can make it all year long. I guess I will have to move to some artic place like Alaska to make that happen. It snowed this week so I finally got a chance to make some. It actually snowed once before this year but, my grandma always told me not to make snow cream with the first snow of the season. I am sure it was an old wives tale but, I listened to my grandma and never disobeyed anything she said.
Supplies for Snow Cream:
About a gallon of fresh clean snow.
1 cup of Half and Half or milk.
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
I think the best part of this recipe is gathering the snow. You can do it a few ways but, my favorite is to place a pot or large bowl outside when the snow starts falling.
The only problem with that is we usually don’t get enough snow here to fill it enough to make a wonderful batch of snow cream. If that happens to you, take a large spoon and gather more until you have about a gallon of fresh clean snow.
Once you have enough snow, sprinkle the top with the sugar and add the milk and vanilla and mix well.
This is one of the reasons I love winter so much. I have many wonderful memories of building snowman, sledding and making snow cream with my kids. To end the perfect snow day you need to come in from the cold and warm up. Here are a few hot chocolate recipes to make you feel all warm and cozy.
