Snow Ice Cream…

9 Dec

I’m not sure where you live, but if you live in the midwest, you most likely got a visit from the snow fairy last night…  This is what we woke up to this morning…  As you can tell it is literally a picture from my front window (you can see the texture of the screen) because I didn’t really want to go out in my PJ’s…

Needless to say, I thought, WHAT CAN WE DO ON THIS FUN SNOW DAY????  Then I remembered SNOW ICE CREAM… Here are a couple recipes, YUM YUM…

OH, OBVIOUSLY you want to collect “fresh” snow… If it’s still snowing the best way to do this is to put out a bowl and collect it as it falls…

1 c. cream

    How about fresh snow with pure maple syrup? That is how I remember eating “snow ice cream” when I was a little girl!
