Snow cream

So many people have asked me about the snow creme, that I decided to post the "recipe." First gather a large bowl of fresh clean snow. I use a big clean bucket to gather it in. Then, sprinkle with vanilla and sugar. Pour milk over mixture and mix. I don't have an exact recipe, I just blend and taste. Make sure to not use too much milk at first, add it in small increments, so you won't over do it. You want it like a smoothie. I use skim milk too, but whole milk and half/half makes a really rich cream. You can put chocolate syrup on it too. We don't do too many extras because it takes away from the creme flavor. We cover it and sit it back in the snow where critters won't get into it. Then the children go out throughout the day and get helpings. Thanks to my Grandma's a good thing!
