Last week we got the worst snow storm in over 2 years (that is what the weather people said). And well all the schools were out and the whole city was pretty much shut down. So we had a Snow Day! We knew a couple days before that this storm was going to be bad and that the schools were going to shut down so I started thinking of some fun things we could do for our snow day. And the first thing I thought of was Snow Ice cream.
You see I am from Florida so I have never had snow ice cream before. To be honest this was the most snow I had ever seen with over a foot on the ground. So as soon as I knew that we were going to be getting so much snow I went searching the web for some recipes. And I came across Paula Deen's Snow Ice Cream and I thought you can't go wrong with Paula so I decided to try hers out. We did add some chocolate chips to ours at the request of my oldest daughter. But the rest of the recipe is all Paula. And it was YUMMY! The girls did not stop eating till their bowls were empty and both the hubs and I loved it too!
One piece of advice, if you are going to be getting a LOT of snow mark where you put your bowl outside or go out and get it before the snow is over. My bowl got buried and I had to dig it out, but lesson learned and with the next storm (which will be here tomorrow night) I will remember to go get my bowl early and sit it on my porch till we are ready to make our ice cream. And no worries if you live in Florida (or anywhere else where you don't get snow) you can still try this out. Just use shaved ice, throw a bunch of ice in your blender and you can see what snow ice cream tastes like!
