Snow treats.

Lots of pretty snow in Seattle and we are getting cabin fever. Any ideas on how I can put the snow to delicious use? (I know it's not the most sterile ingredient in the world, but whatever.)

    don't know if you're from the appropriate generation, but maple
    snow candy à la Little House in the Big Woods is always great when i want to take a trip down memory lane :)

      as a kid, we made snow ice cream. Just add vanilla, sugar and milk to taste to a large container of snow(many recipes on google). Or you could just add the makings for margaritas, etc. and enjoy a lovely frozen drink without breaking out the blender :)

        Plus 1, on the adult beverage made with snow, Sweetpotater.... I am in West Seattle and similarly feeling a little cabin fever here.

        We made adult aspresso slushies this afternoon with espresso, kaluha, snow, and bailey's after a walk in the crunchy icey layer added this morning making the walk challenging. Very refreshing and revivifying!
