It's Winter time at last in Idaho and that means plenty of snow! Other than being fun to play in and watch come down from inside your cozy warm cabin, snow can also make a wonderfully delicious old time treat that folks have been enjoying since the pioneer days!
All you need is some evaporated milk, sugar, vanilla, and the star of the show: fresh snow!
Stir the first three ingredients together, mix in the snow, and you have a delicious vanilla treat that only takes about 5 minutes to make.
1 can evaporated milk (12 ounces)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Bowl of Snow (about 1/2 gallon)
In a small bowl, mix the milk, sugar, and vanilla together until well combined.
In a large bowl, add about 8-10 cups of snow. Pour the milk mixture over the top and stir well to combine. The texture will be close to that of homemade ice cream (thinner than store-bought ice cream but still have some structure when scooped).
Serve right away, adding sprinkles if you’d like.
