Stick a bowl outside before a big snow so you can make Snow Ice Cream! So easy – the perfect project for kids!

Snow Ice Cream - stick a bowl outside to collect fresh snow! Just snow and sweetened condensed milk! The perfect winter activity for kids.

Happy Friday! I’ve got a quick and easy recipe today! You can make it with your kids next time you’re snowed in or just make it for yourself and don’t share with anyone.

I won’t judge you.

We got, like, 8 inches of snow on Wednesday. Which was fun because the weatherman said we’d get 2. He has a history of playing with my emotions so I took a chance and put a ginormous mixing bowl in the background to collect snow.

By lunchtime we had a full bowl of snow and I had a sore throat from yelling at Penelope (the husky) to keep her face out the bowl every time she went out. Seriously, a yard full of snow and she wants to eat my snow?

Jerk.

Snow Ice Cream!

Besides the snow, you just need a can of sweetened condensed milk! You can get fancy and add vanilla but I think it’s delicious just like this. Then you must top it with at least 1/2 a pound of sprinkles. That’s the only way to eat ice cream, right?

We had a ton of fun making it so I put another bowl out that night and it was COVERED with snow by the time I went to bed. By about 9 am, it had all melted. Because… well, welcome to Colorado.
