It’s the perfect day for this amazing SNOW ICE CREAM!!

It’s the second week back to school from Christmas break and -guess what?! It’s a snow day! Yes, we get out of school for about 2 inches of snow here in Virginia. The kids are thrilled though, and we have a plan…

Peppermint Snow Dream Ice Cream

We decided to make our Peppermint Snow Dream Ice Cream…

…or as my kids call it “the Brain Freeze”- and want to share this tradition with you and your family. It’s a simple recipe that starts with your very own fresh snow. If you know it will be snowing; you can leave a bowl out overnight. Otherwise just grab the purest, cleanest layer on top. Make sure you leave it outside until you are ready to mix it all.

It’s super easy and a little messy. Here goes!

You can also make your own unique flavors by switching out the candy canes and peppermint extract for what you like best!

Here are some other ideas:

  • Vanilla extract/ Vanilla bean (from the pod)
  • Lemon Extract/ Lemon zest
  • 1/4 c. well drained pineapple tidbits
