Now, I am the last person to ever get excited to see snow… But I have been waiting all winter to try this out! So I have to say that when I saw the snow tonight, I got a little excited… (especially when I know it’s going to warm up and melt tomorrow!)
I found a couple snow ice cream recipes on-line one night when I was aimlessly surfing for something, probably totally unrelated, but I have been holding onto the idea of snow ice cream ever since. So, for the last couple of weeks, I keep putting bowls and pans outside in hopes of catching a little snow, but instead I have been dumping out water and scraping out ice… What a winter!
As you can see, I put out a few containers as soon as I saw the snow tonight. This is a much cleaner option than trying to scoop a layer of clean snow from the ground. The metal bowl is also great, because it keeps the ice cream cold.
We started with five ingredients; snow, milk, vanilla, condensed milk, and sugar
So, we tried another batch! This, time we added a little chocolate syrup to make chocolate ice cream! I think the next time I make chocolate ice cream, I will add a little less condensed milk, and a little more chocolate.
So, then I started thinking… My baileys recipe would make amazing ice cream! (i think i posted the recipe on new years) So I made us a special baileys blend of snow ice cream for after the kids are in bed!
