Snow Cream Recipe You Must Try!
Here in North Carolina, snow has been falling all day today. It is like a winter wonderland here with over EIGHT inches of fluffy white snow. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago. Snow was pretty common for me growing up but when we moved to North Carolina, snow was few and far between. This winter, we have already had three good snow falls here! That is far more than a normal winter.
Today, we enjoyed a pot of hot chili after pulling the kids behind the four-wheeler on a sled. A little redneck… maybe… but if you have tried it before and do not have snow or a four-wheeler readily available you are probably a little jealous right now! Regardless of all the fun, we are finishing out with a game of spades with some friends and snow cream!
My mom called about the time that I was serving my daughter her first ever snow cream. She told my mom what she was about to eat. Of course, the common phrase when someone talks about eating snow came out of my mom’s mouth, “Don’t eat yellow snow!”. Camila looked down at her bowl and looked back at me. The look she gave was priceless! Yes, this snow cream IS yellow but not because we used yellow snow. Just a tip… make sure shortly after the snow begins to place a clean bowl outside. We like to set it on top of the car so that it is out of the way of any neighborhood dogs.
Just make sure that you have some sweetened condensed milk, milk, and vanilla on hand for the next snow! This snow cream recipe is AMAZING!
