As my family and I hunker down for what the weather calls “a bad winter storm”, we anticipate the wonderful, creamy dessert that we will get to make once the snow hits — Homemade Snow Cream!
When I was a little girl, I remember my mom getting our huge aluminum pan and when the snow fell, she would walk outside and fill that pan all the way full with the fresh fallen snow.
I would watch her mix the sugar and milk together and wait anxiously as she added in the snow to make the most delicious cream I had ever tasted. I knew as a kid that this would be a recipe I would make for my own family when they got older.
Nothing beats a delicious bowl of snow cream on a very snowy evening.
This stuff is fabulous and it freezes well, so double the recipe and make a second batch for later on in the day or week.
I promise…you will LOVE this stuff!
- 1 gallon snow (16 cups)
- 1 cup white sugar
