Happy March 1st! Here in St. Louis we just got a huge dumping of snow! In order not to cry because I really, really, really want it to be spring, we decided to embrace the snow with snow angels, snow balls and chocolate chip snow ice cream recipe!
This is soooooooooo easy and we have made it since my school age days! There are a lot of recipes that call for sweetened condensed milk and those are great but I don’t always have a can of sweetened condensed milk on hand. What I do always have on hand are sugar, milk and vanilla….oh and chocolate chips (duh!)
Start out by having the small people in your life run out and fill a large mixing bowl with fresh snow. Make sure to take a look through the snow good if you send your 4 year old out to do said task! Now dump that snow and send him BACK OUT to get snow that is ONLY WHITE. *sigh*
Next I combine the sugar, milk and vanilla extract in a separate bowl and I mix that until the sugar is dissolved. Combine the milk mixture with the white fresh snow and mix.
Here’s where you can get fancy…add mini-chocolate chips! Want to get even more fancy? Add 1-2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oils and enjoy MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP SNOW ICE CREAM! Oh. My. Gosh. So delicious! We may or may not have had to make a second batch because someone *ahem, not me* might have eaten more than her fair share and the kids were not pleased, lol! So good!

I hate to leave this buzz kill comment, but…. I am originally from Kentucky and when my family moved to Buffalo NY I was thrilled when it snowed. Lots of snow cream I thought, and I actually made some until the Buffalonians stopped me, with all of the acid rain and pollution it probably isn’t the best thing to give small children. So I have put a halt to that great childhood tradition of mine. Times have certainly changed.

I do agree with you that pollution is a concern! I just keep in mind that we have snow only a day or two maybe each year. This is certainly not an everyday food item for us. We also swim in lakes and rivers here which is rain water and I am sure they drink a bit of that as well! I wouldn’t recommend eating this everyday of course! Everything in moderation!
