    My kids adore snow ice cream, but I had no idea there were so many other ways to use snow in recipes! This is a great list. I’m pinning it for later.

    Maple taffy is so good! One of the best thing about going to the sugar shack is maple taffy so good!

    I never thought of making recipes with snow! We have a lot of it right now so it would be a great time to utilize these ideas 😉

    Also, being from Canada, I love the Maple Taffy one!

    I’ve never made anything with snow and heaven knows I get a lot of it. I really doubt the “leavening” of the snow bread. It might make some steam if you’re lucky enough to get it into a very hot oven while the snow is still well, snow but beyond that it’s not going to make anything rise, just provide some small air pockets like you would get in a pie crust. It’s going to be a dense bread no matter what.

    Ooooo, I’m totally excited to try these! The only problem is I live in the south. Doggone it! That’s ok. I’ll send them to my niece to do.

    Oo this couldn’t have come at a better time as we are soon to get our first (and probably ) only snow of the season here in NC. That maple candy looks amazing and I need to check out that snow beer cone 😉

    I live in Southern California so we don’t usually get snow. At least not enough to make things with it. That sounds awesome, I would have never thought of that.

    The snow in our area is pretty dirty – I don’t know if I would actually ever use it for consumption.

    We have lots of snow here and I would secretly get a handful and eat it , thinking it was frowned upon!!! I will go now and scoop up some and have a ball. 🙂

    Well the snow cones we make in Jamaica definitely do not come from real snow….LOL…are we supposed to eat snow though? I have never seen snow so pardon my ignorance….

    No snow here. If we get snow it is usually just an inch so I will use the snow cone maker.

    No snow here in Boston yet and honestly, I am hoping it stays that way. We had enough last year.
