Making Snow Ice Cream

  • February 9, 2013 1:29 pm

It’s a snowy day in Utah. Some of the grandkids were over for a sleepover and we made snow ice cream. Yummy. There are many varieties but this is one variety where you don’t actually eat the snow. If  you don’t have snow available, use crushed ice.

  • Fill a gallon freezer bag halfway full with snow (crushed ice).
  • Add  about 6 tablespoons of salt to the snow. We didn’t have rock salt so we just used regular table salt.
  • In a quart ziploc bag, mix:1/2 cup half and half
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zip up the quart bag, squeeze out excess air, and put inside the gallon bag.
  • Zip up the gallon bag, after again removing any excess air.
  • Squish the bags with your hands until the ice cream is frozen. It’s cold so you may want to wear gloves or else put a dry kitchen towel between your hands and the snow/salt bag.
  • Remove the smaller bag and enjoy your frozen treat!

Here’s a fun link. You draw a stick figure right on the computer–and it becomes animated! Don’t ask me how it’s done so quickly.

I’ve enjoyed making paper dolls ever since I was a little girl. My sisters and I would create entire paper doll families with matching clothes!

There are several great paper doll websites. Here’s my favorite:
