Make snow cream the next time it snows!
I live in Raleigh, North Carolina. We don't often get snow, and when we do everything closes. Today is (hopefully) the last day of our snow days. We've had a good time sledding, building a snowman, making snow angels, reading books, building forts, cleaning out closets, playing games and pushing trucks around in the snow.
Our favorite snow-related activity to date is making snow cream. We get very excited when it snows here, because it's rare. And half the time we get ice, not snow. The anticipation is half the fun, and I always put out a giant bowl to catch the snow before it starts.
The kids can help, it's easy, fast and delicious. I'm surprised at the number of people who don't know about snow cream, and I'm here to tell you: you have try it, it's delicious! I have so many wonderful memories of making this treat when I was a kid and it snows, and I love making it with my kids.
I call this a ‘guessipe', because there really isn't an exact recipe. Enjoy!
