Snow ice cream recipe:
Snowman on a Plate
Isn't this a very cute snow ice cream recipe? My kids really enjoyed eating it after school.
This is a great activity to do with your kids. It's so much fun to make a big snowman outside, but the fun always has to end. When night comes or all the snow melts, that's it for snowman building until the next day, next winter, or next snow trip.
How about extending the fun by building an indoor snowman that you can eat anytime of year? Sounds good to me.
Let's get this snow ice cream recipe started!
For each snowman you'll need:
3 scoops of vanilla ice cream (small, medium, and large)
2 chilled plates (put in freezer for 15 min. ahead)
small candies for eyes, mouth, nose, etc.
any other decorations you want- hat, scarf, real carrot nose
Form three different sized ice cream balls on one of the chilled plates. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
Remove ice cream balls from freezer and roll each one in coconut. Return to freezer for another 15 minutes.
While waiting, you can prepare any candies or other decorations you will be using. ( To make my snowman, I used : licorice- for the eyes, mouth, and buttons, a real piece of carrot cut into a wedge- for the nose, a Ritz cracker dipped in chocolate-for the bottom of the hat, a banana slice dipped in chocolate- for the top of the hat, pretzel sticks and miniature marshmallows- for the arms).
Take the snow balls out of the freezer. Put the eyes, mouth, and nose, and hat on the small ball, the buttons on the medium ball, and return to the freezer for 10 minutes.
Now, take them out again, a long with the extra plate. On the 2nd plate, stack the balls on top of each other from largest to smallest. Add the arms and freeze again for 15 minutes or eat it immediately.
If you would like some more winter fun, you can make
snow ice cream
with real snow or make some
hot cocoa cones
that look like ice cream cones. They make great gifts.
