Step 1: What you will need...

Picture of What you will need...
Ingredient List

1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups of clean snow 

Tools List

-mixing bowl
-large spoon
-gloves (You don't want your hands going numb while picking up snow!)

Step 2: Go outside & let's get started!

Put on your snow boots, gloves, hat, and winter coat! It will all be worth it when you taste what you have made.

It is important that when selecting your snow that you choose a clean area. Do not collect snow from an area where pets go potty (yuck!) Other snow to avoid is that where people have walked on or cars have been. I suggest using a top layer of snow from a deserted area nearby.

Since your bowl has been stored inside at room temperature, it is a good idea to chill your bowl a bit by submerging it in the snow. (2 minutes should be long enough) 

Step 3: Add the good stuff

After the bowl has had time to chill, add your all of your ingredients to the bowl. It does not have to be in any particular order.

If you are doing this with your children, have them help add the ingredients. They will love helping, plus they are doing something productive!

I used to make something like this when I was a kid, by first scraping the inside of the freezer for a bowl of "snow".

Oh, I'm sorry! I meant to put milk. That was a typo. You can either use cream or milk..it doesn't matter. I used milk though.
