Thanks to everyone who entered my Giveaway yesterday! If you didn’t enter, you still have a lot of time so be sure to check it out and enter to win one of 2 prize packages! On a different note…We have snow! Or at least we did this weekend. Now it’s a bit of a sloppy mess. But it was enough time for me to make some homemade snow ice cream! Cake Batter Snow Ice cream that is. No need for an ice cream maker, no fancy ingredients or heavy cream, and it only takes 5 minutes until it’s ready!! Don’t worry, if you don’t have snow you could make this with fluffy shaved ice or come visit me next time it snows and you are more than welcome to take what you want from my yard. I’ll I have 1 acre of snow up for grabs, but please try to take it from the driveway if you don’t mind.
Make sure the snow or ice you use is “fluffy” and not small chunks of ice. The fluffier the better! I added a little Pinnacle Cake flavored vodka to my ice cream and it seemed to keep the ice cream a softer smoother consistency but you could substitute any liqueur and you can also substitute any flavor of cake mix. If you don’t want the alcohol, just substitute milk or cream.
I posted a few other snow ice cream recipes last year (sorry about the horrible pictures! These are old posts!):
Make sure you mix all ingredients together BEFORE you go outside and get your snow. Soon as you bring the snow inside it will melt quick!
When everything but the snow is well mixed, then go outside and get your snow. Quickly mix it into the other ingredients. You can eat it now if you want. It’s fairly soft, but still a good consistency.
I’m just a poor blogger and all I ask for is a little love to keep me going. So please don’t forget to ENTER my current giveaways for some great prizes!
