And I hadn't really intended on posting this recipe. But we got snow! And this particular recipe is pretty special to my hubby. He has some pretty fond memories of his Grandpa making it for all the grandkids. Growing up in northern Indiana, Gene was used to seeing the white stuff a lot during winter. And you learn to make the best of something that can easily become a nuisance. But here in our part of Virginia, we don't see it quite that often. So I thought this special event deserved a special, just for fun recipe. And maybe next time you see that white fluffy stuff, you'll go out there and make some memories with your kiddos too. Ya know, instead of getting smacked with a wet, cold snowball to the face. Yep. Been there. Felt that.
8 cups snow (or shaved ice)
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
First things first, you gotta get the snow. We all know the basic rule of snow gathering. No. Yellow. Snow. You want that fresh stuff. The stuff no one has stepped on.
Once you've had fun gathering up your snow, add in the sweetened condensed milk. Then add in vanilla extract. Now give it all a good stir.
And let's face it, everything is better with sprinkles.
