There are countless recipes for snow cream out there and I honestly am pretty surprised that I have the ability to bring you even one! Living in Alabama, snow is not something we normally see (We’re usually lucky if we get a dusting a decade) but we woke up to a full ten inches this morning and folks started asking about snow cream on Facebook so here we go!
My recipe is simple because…well you have probably caught onto the fact that I’m not one to complicate things. Simple is good and why mess with a good thing, right?
Oh, usual disclaimers apply. If you live near a nuclear meltdown zone, you are probably better off eating plain old ice cream. If you raise dogs who have already tromped through your yard this morning, you are probably better off eating plain old ice cream as well. I put my dishpans out last night so I have a big old pile of fresh clean snow to begin with.
Okay, now lets get crackin!
You’ll need: a Dishpan of snow, a can of sweetened condensed milk, two kids.
*Don’t fret over the amount of the snow. Just eyeball it and you’ll be fine.
*If you only have one kid, that will work, too! If you have ten+ kids, you’re gonna need more snow…
Pour sweetened condensed milk over snow.
As in, I really stirred it myself and then let Karo pose for this picture…
I put the remaining snow cream on the back porch so we can go back for seconds later!

- Discourage snow cream fights because they are sticky to clean up.
