Snow Cream

We are having yet another snow day today. This time we actually had some accumulation - so I ran out to gather some snow with the kids (and do a little sledding too of course.)

After we came in the kids wanted hot cocoa (I didn't tell them why we were collecting the snow) I told them I had another plan, after all why warm up with cocoa when you can have snow cream?

I went to grab my ingredients: Condensed milk and vanilla but when I opened the condensed milk it was nasty!! It was brown and smelled pretty bad. I did a quick search online and could not believe how many snow cream recipes there were. Here is what we ended up doing. Enjoy!!

What you need:

about 8 cups of clean snow

1/2 cup of sugar

1 cup of heavy cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat the cream, sugar and vanilla

Pour over snow

Gently fold

We topped it with chocolate syrup - yum!!

Come see more of me here


  1. I used to fill a ziplock bag with Rice Dream, cream, and a little vanilla, and bury it out in the snow while I played. Then 15 minutes later it was ice cream! This was before I knew anyone else used snow as an ice cream making method. lol!

  2. Cute! I've never heard of Snow cream,but I lived in orange county California most of my life :)
