Got Snow? Most folks in the Triad seem to have enough to make this winter weather treat! Enjoy!
Snow Cream Base Recipe
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 TBS flour
- 2 eggs (or egg beaters)
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 pint plain milk
- 1 TBS vanilla
- food coloring
- snow (a big bowl)
Mix all of the above together except for the food coloring and snow. Keep cold until the snow is gathered.
Send kids out to get snow. Tell them not to get snow off the car or any snow that looks less than white. The best bet is to wipe off the top layer and then get snow better that layer and the ground layer but not going all the way to the ground. The amount of snow can vary. Tell the kids to aim for about as much snow as the size of a basketball.
Stir snow in with Snow Cream base.
Either put a few drops of food coloring in the big bowl and mix or give everyone an individual bowl and let everyone color their own Snow Cream.
If you have any Snow Cream left over, store that in the freezor. It's not as good as fresh, but it's still OK.
This recipe does have raw eggs, so check out the safety rules for eggs at the USDA page. I've never heard of anyone having problems with Snow Cream, but I guess there's a first for everything.
