Snow "Ice Cream"

Wow, this was seriously fun! I've heard of snow ice cream before & I had this image in my mind of snow cones but this stuff is way better!!

It was super easy too! It simply calls for...
6 quarts of FRESH snow (fluffy, don't pack it)

1 tsp of vanilla
1 & 1/2 to 2 cups of sugar (to taste)
1 quart of Heavy whipping cream or half & half

We only had 3 & 1/2 cups cream & the remainder was half & half. It worked just fine. So all ya do is mix all ingredients minus the snow. Get it all good & swirly then start adding the snow 2 cups at a time, mixing as you go.

Now, this isn't standard ice cream, it's even creamier than soft serve but it's very good. You can adjust the sugar to your taste & I would imagine you can have all sorts of fun with toppings. The Monkey added some M&M's =)

We ate some up right away, & it received rave reviews!!

Even the Munchkin approved.

The rest went in the freezer til the next day. It froze up real nice & had a texture I was used to. Whether you have it right away or wait a day it's very good.
