Snow Cream

Here in South Carolina we are snowed in with about 7 inches of snow on the ground. We have had a wonderful day to home together resting and playing. The snow was not so great for making a snowman, but it was perfect for making SNOW CREAM.

What you need:
(When we are expecting snow, I usually put a big bowl out on the picnic table to collect the snow for our snow cream.)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
milk (not pictured)

Mix the sugar, vanilla and sweetened condensed milk well.

Once mixed, pour that mixture over your bowl of snow. Begin stirring the snow and sugar mixture adding milk as needed to make it smooth and creamy.
Mix well and then enjoy this yummy winter time treat with your family. As you can see, I made a big batch of snow cream today to share with our neighbors and to put in the freezer. Travis and I are getting ready to enjoy another bowl once the kids go to bed.
I have to give credit to my mother-in-law for teaching me how to make snow cream. I don't remember having it growing up and I don't think we did since my sister called me this afternoon to ask me how to make it...

Yummy! That is funny that you posted that recipe b/c that is on the to-do list tomorrow for Mackaylan and myself as long as the snow isn't too frozen! I'm lovin' the ranch potato recipe as well. Love this idea! Keep the ideas coming....
