Winter Storm Octavia surprised us with 6 inches of the fluffy white stuff on Sunday night. I wasn’t able to get in to the clinic to see patients so it was a snow day at the Fritz household! Sadly, Dad has a man cold. That didn’t stop the little man and I from having a blast! We went sledding, drank hot cocoa and made snow ice cream! Have you ever made snow ice cream? It’s quick, simple and delicious! Such a fun treat!
I swear we made this in Girl Scouts once because the taste was familiar. At any rate, it’s yummy! I adapted this from a recipe on AllRecipes.com.
1 cup of milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
8-10 cups of snow
Mix together your non-snow ingredients and place in the freezer.
Send small child who loves being cold, out into the snow to collect 8-10 cups of the fresh fluffy stuff.
Quickly mix the snow in with the non-snow ingredients.
Add sprinkles and chow down!
I had oodles of Valentine sprinkles left over, so this was a very pink project.
This is a fun and easy recipe to do with kids. As a matter of fact, they can do the whole thing!
Or you can make these fun DIY Snowflake Marshmallows to dress up your hot chocolate when you get in from sledding!
How do you spend your snow days?
