Desserts You Can Make Using Snow!

December 10, 2018

The East Coast is dealing with a massive winter storm right now.  But you can do more with snow than just shovel it.  You can also shovel it in your MOUTH.​ If you're feeling creative over the holidays, there are lots of recipes online that use snow as an ingredient.  Here are three snow-based desserts you can try . . .

1.  Peppermint Snow Ice Cream.  Mix 8 cups of snow . . . a 14-ounce can of condensed milk . . . and a teaspoon of peppermint extract, and you’ve got yourself mint ice cream.  Something SIMILAR to ice cream anyway.

2.  Maple Candy.  Heat some maple syrup in a pan to about 240 degrees.  Then drizzle it in strips over packed snow, and roll it onto a popsicle stick.  It won’t crystalize and harden, buy the end result should have a taffy-like consistency.

3.  Hot Cocoa Slushies.  Melt three ounces of chocolate, and stir in 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, plus one-and-a-half tablespoons of sugar.  Then remove it from the burner, and stir in a half-cup of milk . . . let it cool . . . and add one more cup of milk.  At that point, you can start adding snow until it has the consistency of a slushy.  Then just top it with whipped cream.
