When the snow hits our house, all bets are off.

You’d think that with it being so cold outside my kids would want to stay inside to keep warm by the fire but nope. They want to be outside throwing snowballs at each other and the dogs.

One of our favorite traditions is to wait for the very first snowfall and I mean the first one that really dumps feet of snow. Then we get our winter gear on and head outside to collect clean and fresh snow to eat.

Yes, I said eat!

We make this Snow Ice Cream every year and it never disappoints. It’s one of my kids’ favorite treats to make in the winter season.

How to make your own Snow Ice Cream

Step 1

Once we know it is going to snow, we like to freeze some stainless steel bowls to be ready for collecting snow. This step is optional but it does help keep the snow nice and frozen.

Fill your bowl with snow and then liberally sprinkle salt over it.

Step 2

Once it snows, fill your bowl with snow and then liberally sprinkle salt over it. This will be your “cooler” so the snow doesn’t melt while you’re mixing and serving the ice cream.

Step 3

Next, add in your powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla and mix it up well.

  1. we like using maple sugar or honey for our sweetener. Also, I found if you add some cooled coffee it’s like a frappucino, only much cheaper!

  2. wow- what a yummy idea. Lord knows we have enough of the stuff to work with!

    Our girls made this yesterday! This must be where they got the idea. It was certainly a big hit!

  4. What a great idea! We tried snow candy a year or two back, which my daughter keeps asking for. Given that we’re looking at a few more inches of snow, I think we will try this!

  5. Have you made Sugar on Snow? Just heat real maple syrup and drizzle oveer a pan of snow. The sugar hardens into sugar candy pieces.

  6. The content published was very informative and helpful. You individuals are doing a fantastic job. Carry on.
