What Do You Make of All This Snow?

You can make snowmen, snow angels, snow balls...or snow treats!

Real Snow Cones


Clean, freshly fallen snow
Snow cone syrup, any flavor(s)


Pack snow into a paper or Styrofoam cup, making a dome shape with the snow. Pour desired amount of snow cone syrup on top.


You can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the bottom of your cup and pack the snow on top of it. Finish it off by topping it with snow cone syrup.

Or you could drizzle sweetened cream, or sweetened condensed milk on top of your snow cone after you have added the syrup.

Or you can use less snow and make more of a slushy/Slurpee concoction (see below).

Snow Ice Cream


Clean, freshly fallen snow
Milk, to taste
Sugar, to taste
Flavoring of choice, to taste (vanilla extract, almond extract, other favorite extract flavors, Italian Soda Syrup flavor of choice, etc.)


Mix snow, milk, sugar, and desired flavoring together until you reach your desired consistency and taste. Use less snow if you want more of a shake-like consistency. Use more snow if you want a thicker ice cream. It's as easy as that!

Source: My grandma used to make this for my Mom and her sisters when they were kids. Then, my mom made it for us when we were kids.

Notes: You know, snow ice cream is one of the best things about winter. It brings back so many childhood memories for me.

My boys like it as more of a snow shake or slushy than snow ice cream, and they drink it with a straw. The thickness and consistency is really up to you (less milk if you want it thicker, more milk if you want more of a shake/slushy).

This is now the third time I have posted the recipe for snow ice cream. You can find the original post here. You can find the second post here.
