How to make snowshoes with Kentucky snow

Have you ever heard of making ice cream out of snow? Snow cream is an easy to make recipe, and you probably already have all the ingredients in your kitchen.

Well, everything except the snow.

A warning before you start. You need to make sure you collect new snow, typically right after it falls from the sky. Make sure it is light white – if it is colored in any way, then it is contaminated with dirt, animals or something else.


Also, remember that you need to work fast as you never know how long the main ingredient will be available before it melts away.

Here are three varieties of snow cream recipes to get you started.

If you feel like being creative with your snow-covered snack, you can experiment with adding sprinkles, maple syrup and even things like eggs.
