Only a few more ingredients and you're all set. The recipe that I've used for more years than I can count came from one of the local weathermen, Don Woods, who has since retired.
I've got to give you a little background on Mr Woods. He was Oklahoma's first weatherman with a degree in meteorology. He started at KTUL in 1954. He's even listed here in Wikipedia. Listen to Mr Woods talk about his early days as a weatherman and his little pal Gusty on YouTube here. Gusty is a cartoon character that Don drew and even Gusty has his own website. Back in the day you could send your name into the t.v. station and if you were lucky, your name would be drawn and your prize would be that day's Gusty. Unfortunately I was never one of the lucky ones.
But back to making snow ice cream. Mr Woods' original recipe is at the end of this post. I was out of Milnot (evaporated milk) that day last March so I substituted half-and-half. Although I've added the egg called for in the recipe more times than not, for whatever reason I didn't that day. Some people might frown on the raw egg anyway so it's just as well.
Basically just stir up the snow, evaporated milk (or half-and-half), powdered sugar and vanilla and enjoy this wonderful wintertime treat. It melts pretty quickly so you need to do your enjoying fast.
But not too fast or you'll get a brain freeze!
Don Woods’ Snow Ice Cream

1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 to 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Mix all together and enjoy.
Now if it will just snow!
Do you make snow ice cream when the white stuff comes your way? If so, what's in your recipe?
