Delicious! I didn't add the entire can of condensed milk for fear it would be too sweet like some of the earlier reviews mentioned. I did add milk to get it to a desired consistency! item not reviewed by moderator and published
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unless you like your snow cream VERY strong, make sure the 8 cups of snow you gather is PACKED when measuring. Also, hand-stir only; don't attempt to mix in a mixer, as the snow cream will be too soupy. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We are having a snow day today so why not take advantage other key ingredient! Fun, easy, and yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Since we're in a crazy snow storm, I could have opened an ice cream shop lol. Nonetheless, this recipe was very tasty and the consistency was divine. We had never heard of it, now I see this being a staple for us. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! Yum! We just got 10 inches of new snow and it was a snow day from school. Made it for the boys and we just loved it! You can almost look forward to having it snow just so you can make this! We ended up with more than 8 cups of snow once we started to stir. We added about 4 more cups. I think it would depend on the snow that fell where you live. Thanks! Great fun! item not reviewed by moderator and published
yummy! Added about a tablespoon of sugar, and it's just like my mama used to make. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this simple recipe... for a little variety, add just a bit (to taste of strawberry preserves (or whatever flavor to the mix... AMAZING! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was pretty good..although it was a little sweet. I think maybe if you only add half of the sweetened condensed milk it would taste better. Also, make sure that the snow is packing snow, if the snow is light and fluffy you will definetly need more than 8 cups. If you want to add a playful twist on this recipe, use a couple of squirts of mint extract and crushed peppermint : item not reviewed by moderator and published

To those who "used to eat" snow -- since we have been measuring air quality, the air in the United States has never been cleaner. When homes used to be heated by burning wood or coal, the air was filled with a much greater level of particulates. Let's not be ridiculous, okay? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always make this for my kids when it snows. It takes me back to the days when my Grandmother made "snow cream" for me and the other grand-kids. I love the memories of family and fun times brought about by a certain food and/or scent. Enjoy this with your little ones and big ones! The time spent together preparing it is totally worth it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok, I live in Florida, so I'll never be able to make this with snow, but I have used shaved ice and it's pretty good! For those people who are concerned about eating real snow...c'mon people, you eat worse things than "polluted" snow every day!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent snow cream and so easy to make!!!! I did have to add a little white milk to make it creamy, but that may have been because we started out with more snow than receipe calls for...didn't measure snow. Highly recommend!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'll have to say it take a true southerner to get it right. Love ya Paula thanks for all the recipes you have. Snow cream is the best. I was raised on it and now my children and I'm going to now make some for my grands. A family tradition. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you Mrs. Deen! item not reviewed by moderator and published
miss paula i think the recipe is wonderful. and to those who say such negotive things about it like oh no snow is dirty or southerners r not smart, IF YOU KNEW HOW TO READ YOU WOULD SEE THAT THE RECIPE CLEARLY STATES 8 CUPS SNOW OR SHAVED ICE SO OBVIOUSLY SHAVED ICE IS WHAT YOU USE INSTED IF SNOW IS NOT GOOD WHERE YOU LIVE agin great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
To the person that said we southerners don't know anything....do you eat vegetables and all the things that you think are organic well it grows because it rains and where does rain come from? It comes from the same place that the snow came from and you are eating the same pollution you think you are not eating! Paula you are the best! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have had this since I was a kid. Try making a custard using up to 6 eggs, 1 quart of half and half, sweetened condensed milk, sugar, and a little vanilla. I never measure any of this. Once everything but the eggs are heated, temper the eggs so they don't cook quickly, then add to the mixture and cook a few minutes. Once it cools, add enough snow so it has the consistency you want. This has been a favorite everytime we get a big snow. item not reviewed by moderator and published
With all of the blizzards we have been getting in the Mid-Atlantic, this one has come in handy. Add some mashed ripe strawberries and you will get the best strawberry "snow" cream ever! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

We had snow right before the holidays this year. We used peppermint extract and a drop or two of green food coloring - Very festive! Have also heard of using lemon extract. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I get so excited when we get a big snow storm because I love to make and eat snow ice cream with my children! I agree with Julie of Palmyra, VA - it's a right of childhood. If people are concerned about germs, toxins and pollution, they better put their kids in a plastic bubble. There's a lot worse out there than snow ice cream. It's one of the best memories you can make for your kids. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe and it tastes just like my Grandmother made when I was little! My kids LOVED it and it was so easy. The only problem I have with making the ice cream was hearing all the negative comments from my friends!! "I can't believe you let your kids eat snow with all the germs, toxins and pollution!!" Ugh. Can't win. What is your thought about letting kids eat snow? I just think it's a right of childhood... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I grew up and had flavored snow a few times as a kid. I didn't know how it was made until now. I am glad I could let my children taste a bit of my childhood memories. Thanks Paula for be "Country" and passing on the memories. It is exactly as I remember it "Perfect" item not reviewed by moderator and published

Being from a 6th generation Floridian, didn't know about Snow Cream. My husbands grandmother made some for me when we visited one Christmas. We now live in Tennessee and I made it for my children, grandchidren and neighbors. I love it and can't wait for it to snow each year. Take care and God bless, K item not reviewed by moderator and published
The base recipe is very simple and we had fun with it by adding different ingrediants. The first time we used vanilla bean vs vanilla extract. The next batch we used vanilla bean and Meyer lemon rind and two Tbls juice. Our final combination we used 4Tbls creamy peanut butter mixed with the condensed milk before adding to the snow. So good!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used to make my version growing up in Washington State. However, in the Philippines there is a dessert similar to this, we call it Halo Halo (Mix Mix.) Take shaved ice, evaporated milk, sugar, and whatever fruits (bottled or fresh,) red sweet beans (I think most people know it as chinese red beans, I know it as mungo.) It's not really an ice cream, but more of a drink. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hey Ya'll, I've been eating "snow cream" as my mom callsit, all of my life. But this year is the first time I've used this recipe. I have to say it is the easiest and best tasting that I've ever had. No extra stirring to make sure all the sugar has dissolved, it was great. Thanks Paula, for all your wonderful recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
