Wicked Winter Guide

Wicked Winter Guide

The Boston area is looking at a massive snowstorm this weekend that is being measured in feet. But you can do more with snow than just shovel it. You can also shovel it in your mouth!

If you’re feeling creative this weekend, there are lots of recipes online that use snow as an ingredient.

Here are three snow-based desserts you can try.

  • 1. Peppermint Snow Ice Cream

    • Mix 8 cups of snow
    • a 14-ounce can of condensed milk
    • a teaspoon of peppermint extract

    Voila! You’ve got yourself mint ice cream. Something similar to ice cream anyway.

  • 2. Maple Candy

    • Heat some maple syrup in a pan to about 240 degrees.
    • Then drizzle it in strips over packed snow, and roll it onto a popsicle stick.
    • It won’t crystalize and harden, buy the end result should have a taffy-like consistency.
  • 3. Hot Cocoa Slushies

    • Melt three ounces of chocolate
    • Stir in 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder
    • Plus one-and-a-half tablespoons of sugar.
    • Then remove it from the burner, and stir in a half-cup of milk
    • Let it cool and add one more cup of milk.

    At that point, you can start adding snow until it has the consistency of a slushy. Then just top it with whipped cream.
