Snow Cream

In North Texas we usually don’t get much snow.  We usually get ice which is no fun!  Today we got tons of good, powder snow.

We decide to try and make Snow Ice Cream.  We set a large bowl out on the patio table and let snow accumulate.  After the bowl was full, we brought it in.  We made several different flavors.
