Stick a bowl outside before a big snow so you can make Snow Ice Cream! So easy – the perfect project 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?
How To Make Homemade Snow Ice Cream
Besides the snow, you just need a can of sweetened condensed milk! Stir that together with about 8 cups of snow and you’re done! The snow starts to melt as soon as you bring it inside, of course, so work quickly. If you can handle making it outside, that’s an even better idea.
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.
