Snow Cream Recipe for a Winter's Day
Snow Cream is a delicious way to enjoy a winter day. This is a quick and easy recipe for kids (or kids at heart) to make with just a few ingredients. What better way to relish a pristine snowfall than to eat it, am I right?
With Thanksgiving just around the corner and Christmas down the street, this time of year always makes me miss the mainland for a very important reason: Snow. I love snow. Snowboarding, snow angels, snowmen, snowballs, etc., etc., etc. For some reason, it never snows where I live...still trying to figure that out.
So for all of you who can enjoy the snow (yes, please enjoy it) this Christmas season, I want you to do me a favor. Make me a delicious bowl of snow cream. You’ll have to eat it yourself though, because I’m afraid it might melt in the mail, even if you bubble-wrapped it.
This is my family’s Snow Cream Recipe. It’s strange that it comes from my Southern relatives, considering that they don’t ever get much snow. And like most Southern recipes, the quantities are always relative: a little of this, a little of that, and cook until done. Notwithstanding, snow cream is fun to make and to eat, and kids love it.
If you live in a city, or if your sky is polluted with smog, or if your snow is not quite white, you may want to reconsider actually eating the snow.
Mix a large bowl of fresh snow with about one cup of sugar and about one cup of evaporated milk (you probably could just use regular milk) and vanilla extract to taste. Eat before it melts!
Now isn’t that the simplest recipe ever? Children love helping make this fun dessert!
