I Scream, You Scream for Snow Cream

snow cream ideas rose andwomble

Since Hampton Roads is under a ton of snow you might want to consider making the tasty treat known as snow cream.

Basic Snow Cream

You’ll Need:

  • 4 cups fresh snow
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Just mix together and enjoy. We’ve also seen recipes where instead of milk and sugar you use a can of condensed milk.

But why stop at basic, boring snow cream? Here are some varieties to try.

Mocha Snowcream from Creative Connection Kids

Take about 3/4 cup basic snow cream mix and put it into a cup. Then add about 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup and pour a 1/4 cup of the cold coffee. Stir until smooth and creamy.

And one of the best parts of #AskJenLive is that Jen features one dog each week who is looking for his forever home. Today’s pup was Hagrid, a senior beagle mix who would love to spend his golden years with a loving family. He is going to be great with a family with calm dogs and older children.
