Snow Ice Cream

Due to MASSIVE amounts of snow, and one single memory of my own childhood where my mom made snow ice cream and it just rocked my world, I decided I MUST do the same for my girls. Our snow days tend to have two traditions, playing in the snow with snow ball (or dust) fights and a welcome back to the inside with warm hot chocolate and marshmellows! This was a welcomed addition by all in the family.

1 Cup of White Sugar
2 Cups of Milk
2 Tablespoons of Vanilla
and about a gallon of snow, or in our case, a large halloween candy bowl full!

I do things a tad differently, I heat up my milk, sugar and vanilla while the kids are getting dressed, once the sugar is mixed well, I leave the milk on the stove top with NO HEAT to cool while we play outside. When we come in, the mixture is cooled and ready to be mixed into the snow! If you skip this step, you can end up with clumps of sugar in your snow.
