We have a pretty nice snow day ahead of us, how about taking advantage of it?
Thanks to TreeHugger here are some recipes to try today that actually include SNOW as an ingredient:
- Peppermint Snow Ice Cream. Mix 8 cups of snow . . . a 14-ounce can of condensed milk . . . and a teaspoon of peppermint extract, and you’ve got yourself mint ice cream (or something to similar to ice cream)
- Maple Candy. Heat some maple syrup in a pan to about 240 degrees. Then drizzle it in strips over packed snow, and roll it onto a popsicle stick. It won’t crystalize and harden, buy the end result should have a taffy-like consistency.
- Hot Cocoa Slushies. Melt three ounces of chocolate, and stir in 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, plus one-and-a-half tablespoons of sugar. Then remove it from the burner, and stir in a half-cup of milk . . . let it cool . . . and add one more cup of milk.
It goes without saying to avoid the yellow snow, I think you know why.
