When you're a kid, nothing could be better than a snow day. Forget the fact you don't have to go to school, you've got a whole day to drink hot chocolate, eat real snow cones, make snow angels, throw snowballs at your little siblings, and build the biggest, baddest snowman your little hands can make. Yep, nothing could get better than that, until now. Get ready to trade in the shaved ice, because Girl in the Woods has come up with a clever hack to make real homemade snow ice cream.
In a large bowl, whisk sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Next, pour it into a bowl of fresh snow, then set it in the freezer for thirty minutes. Yeah, I know the snow is cold already, but at this point, it has started to defrost. By letting it sit, you can scoop out the perfect snowball. Once it's ready, scoop your snowballs into a small bowl and top with rainbow sprinkles or hot cocoa mix. Oh, and be sure it's freshly fallen clean snow. We don't want any yellow snow cream here.
How yummy does that look? Even if you don't have kids, this is a fun treat that will make you feel young all over again. And all it takes are a few simple ingredients!
It doesn't have to end there, though. You can come up with a whole mess of ice cream toppings for your gourmet ice cream. Chocolate syrup, caramel, graham cracker crumbles, hot fudge, marshmallow whip, maple syrup, and peanut butter cups would all be delicious.
And if you're not really a vanilla ice cream person, try adding some chocolate chips to your cream mixture or whatever other flavors you fancy. Better than store-bought, eating a bowl of fluffy snow ice cream is the only way to enjoy winter activities.
This homemade ice cream is the perfect sweet treat to enjoy during the first snowstorm of the season. Once there is snowfall, grab a big bowl and make this easy snow ice cream recipe. One thing: once you make this for the first time, they'll be no stopping you from eating snow every year.
