Rudolph’s Christmas Cabins all covered in snow. And Santa too of course! Except he’s not covered in snow. I think he was thankful of that. 🙂
They look just a little different in the snow … very Christmas-y!

We’ve had our share of the white stuff lately … though not as much as other areas see on a regular basis. One thing I remember from snow days at home is my mom making snow ice cream. Thought I’d share that recipe!
Snow Ice Cream
Whisk sugar, salt, vanilla, and milk in a large mixing bowl until combined. Add in your snow. You need around 8 cups, more or less depending on the consistency of the snow.
Once it’s stirred in you want an ice cream type consistency. So add until you achieve that. Should be fluffy and easy to scoop. Not runny!
It melts fairly quick so serve it up! Add sprinkles if you like.
*Eat snow at your own risk. If you’re worried, use shaved ice. And for goodness sake avoid yellow snow! 🙂

Old Fashioned Fudge
In a large dutch oven on medium heat, melt butter, sugar and evaporated milk. Heat to boiling and once it has come to a rolling boil, set a 6 minute timer. Once the six minutes is up, remove from heat and add the marshmallow cream and chocolate chips.
After it’s good and combined, add the vanilla and continue to stir until the fudge no longer runs quickly off the spoon. It should sort of collapse off the spoon if that makes sense. If it doesn’t, I can’t help you. 🙂
You’re ready to pour the fudge onto a jelly roll pan and spread the mixture evenly around. Wait about 30 minutes or so and then start slicing!
