S is for Snow Part II

I big thank you to my sister-in-law in New Hampshire for telling me about Snow Ice Cream.  Not being a native New Englander, I've never tried making it, but based on her recommendation, the next decent snow we get, we'll give it a try (not that I want any more snow this season, we've already had 74+ inches, and honestly I'm tired of digging out and don't want to have school up until July!)

I found a few variations on recipes, so based on what you have on hand, one of these will hopefully work for you!  Don't forget to pull out any toppings you might have on hand...caramel, strawberry syrup, sprinkles, chocolate, crushed up candy canes or other candy, mint GS cookies, Oreo get the picture!

Recipe #1 - 4 ingredients you probably have on hand

    * 1 gallon snow
    * 1 cup white sugar
    * 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    * 2 cups milk

When it starts to snow, place a large, clean bowl outside to collect the flakes. When full, stir in sugar and vanilla to taste, then stir in just enough milk for the desired consistency. Serve at once.


Recipe #2 from Paula Deen, and Food Network - 3 ingredients you may have on hand

    * 8 cups snow, or shaved ice
    * 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place snow or shaved ice into a large bowl. Pour condensed milk over and add vanilla. Mix to combine. Serve immediately in bowls.  Source:

Recipe #3 - 3 ingredients,this one is good for chocolate lovers like me!

    * fresh snow, about 8 cups
    * 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
    * Hershey's chocolate syrup (or similar), about 1/4 - 1/2 cup


Take a big bowl and fill it with fresh snow, add and stir in sweetened condensed milk and some Hershey's chocolate syrup, to taste. Source:

If life sends you snow, go with it and make ice cream!  YUM!!!!
