Snow Cream

It rarely snows in Atlanta, and when it does it is cause for celebration. When they were little, the guys adored the Little Bear series by Maurice Sendak and according to one of the stories, a special chant must be recited while stirring the snow cream. “Whether the weather be cold, or whether the weather be hot, we’ll weather the weather, whatever the weather, whether we like it or not!”

10 cups clean fresh snow (large mixing bowl full)
1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add condensed milk and vanilla to snow and fold together gently until well mixed. The amount of snow will reduce a good bit when ingredients are mixed so add snow as needed.

Hint: Refrigerate condensed milk ahead of time, while it makes it a little more difficult to mix, the snow does not melt as quickly. Serve immediately.
