It’s that time of year when the snow will be falling and imaginations are running wild! Will you be running outside to build a snowman, construct an igloo, or make a snow angel? Are you excited to fly downhill with your best friend on your fastest sled or snow tube? Are you planning an intense, all out snowball fight with the neighborhood? Maybe you prefer to hang inside next to the warm fire with a hot cup of cocoa in your hand watching a movie or reading a book. If you’re anything like me though, you’ll be in the kitchen looking to whip up the next best winter meal. Maybe you want something like a hot, delicious chili or butternut squash soup. Maybe you are craving the sweeter side of life and are busting out the chocolate chip cookie ingredients as we speak.
You know what might be the perfect ingredient to use in some of those sweeter dishes that you can make during this winter season? I’ll give you one hint: you can find it right outside your door. That’s right, snow! If you haven’t considered highlighting snow in your next winter treat recipe, you might want to give it a try. And to help get you started, the internet is a wonderful source for the perfect snow recipes!
For instance, the Food Network provides recipes for maple snow cones and even has its own spin on the classic Italian dessert affogato! They call is snow-fogato. Pack some fresh snow (about the size of a baseball) into a large coffee cup. Then pour sweetened milk and strong coffee over the snow. Feel free to top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings and Viola! Perfect for you coffee lovers.
