Growing up, I remember loving snow days.  I loved it even more when my mom would make me snow ice-cream.  So here is the recipe my mom used that I am now using with MY kids!

While they are gathering the snow, mix the milk, vanilla and sugar until the sugar is all dissolved.  Add in the snow cup by cup.  Stir it constantly until the mixture has the consistency of ice-cream.  Then add any desired toppings.

    Now I have to go find me some snow! LOL! I honestly thought we’d get snow this weekend but wishful thinking on my part. This looks so good! I’ll have to tell my cousin about this recipe. They live in Oregon, and there’s snow there. Thanks for sharing 🙂
