Snowy Day Treats

It's yet another snowy day in Southwest Missouri. You all know I was set on making snow ice cream this winter. I got to do that last week. It was scrumptious! This time I mixed up a can of sweetened condensed milk, a big bowl of snow, and enough milk to help the condensed milk mix throughout. It was delicious.  Here's a healthy version.

Today I'm hoping to fill a big bowl again with snow. I had my son set my metal bowl out on top of his overturned canoe so that we can get nice clean snow.  Then I want to make another Little House in the Big Woods, Laura Ingalls Wilder, inspired treat. Maple Syrup Snow Candy!  Maybe you want to try it, too.

Happy with the snow
It is winter after all!


  1. This is perfect timing! I told my little girl we would be making this today. Thanks!

  2. Well HELLO there, Laura!

    Everyone I know has been making this snow ice cream, I think I need to have my boys go out and look for a clean batch of snow, so we too can try this!

    It's been way to cold to even venture out and when you do, you stink in all the mud. I am ready for warmer weather and colorful flowers! :)

    I hope you are doing well. I'm not on the computer much. I've missed my blogging friends!

    Have a wonderful "cozy" day!


  3. I remember the Laura Ingalls snow candy ice cream..
    Are you going to make it? Let us know, how it taste...
    We had snow last week, and we made snow cream twice..
    Now. we have more snow coming tonight. So I guess we will have more snow cream.. but... I WANT
    Have a blessed week.

  4. We used to make a lot of snow ice cream when I was a little girl. we loved it! We also had one of those crank ice cream makers.

    so fun for us kids! I bet your kids love it too!

  5. We hand cranked ice cream as kids, Vickie. It was rewarding!

  6. Hi Judy,
    We didn't get enough snow! :(

  7. I am well, Amy. I've got three kids who use my computer to do school lessons. Then my husband uses it during the evening. It's not easy to get on it myself! That's why I haven't been writing so many posts lately.

    Have a great week!

  8. I must admit I find this fascinating, all that you can do from snow, wow. I read a post the other day about snow candy and that sounds great too. Have fun with it all. Now I wish we lived where it snowed. Thank you for sharing at Good Morning Mondays Laura, it is always a pleasure when you stop by. Blessings

  9. Hi Terri,
    It's fun to do old-fashioned things.

  10. I've always wanted to try this! Thanks for the how to - and that is just the cutest little snowman!

  11. YUM! Anything with sweetened condensed milk is delicious! I remember making snow ice cream as a child. So fun! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
