December 15, 2016 – This time of year, there’s nothing quite as magical as the first snowfall. It’s the perfect backdrop for holiday cooking, family movie nights by the fire and outdoor winter fun with the kids. But did you know snow can serve a purpose in your kitchen, too? It’s true! Freshly fallen snow is a wonderful addition to wintry recipes. Here are a few of our favorites:
Peppermint Mocha Frosted Candy Cane Cupcakes
Big, fluffy flakes been falling all day? Head out into the yard and round up some snow! Add 1 cup to the baking mix and half a cup to the frosting to give these cupcakes a lighter texture.
Holiday Cranberry Fizz
Make your holiday mocktail a little merrier by serving it over freshly fallen snow. Loose snow will work just fine, but you can create mini-snowballs to drop into your drink, too.
Homemade Snow Ice Cream
All you need for this homemade treat is fresh snow, milk (condensed or regular) and vanilla extract. Easy as 1-2-3 and sweet as can be.
