Winter Storm Atlas was forecasted to bring us lots of snow here in Cheyenne! We spent the days before playing in the sun, getting the RV ready for the freezing temperatures and preparing for the snow! Fortunately it wasn’t as bad as it was forecast, but these Texans still got to have a little snowy fun!
The night before the boys set bowls out to catch fresh snow so that we could make some snow-treats!
First, we made snow-cream! There are a lot of different recipes for this, but I used what I had on hand!
Ingredients: Fresh SNOW, Sweetened condensed milk and Maple Syrup!
The boys added some “sprinkles” we had in the pantry!
Next, we tried our hand at snow candy! This ended up being a caramel-like candy! It was pure deliciousness!
Ingredients: 1/8 cup molasses, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1/8 cup butter and about 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
Boil while stirring until it thickens and pour strips and piles onto fresh snow. There are lots of recipes, but this really is close to a caramel!
