snow cream (snow ice cream)

The Dallas area usually does not get snow. Last year I heard
about snow cream, but the snow had already melted. I decided
if it was going to snow this year I was going to make some
for my boys. Well, today it snowed, so we made some snow cream this
afternoon. My boys loved it!!

8 cups of clean snow
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vanilla

Bundle up and gather some clean snow in a bowl. Add sugar, milk, and
vanilla. Mix together and enjoy. Add your favorite toppings.
