Creamy edible snow cones

Simple, easy, and surprisingly delicious!


  • Container for collecting snow
  • About 8-10 cups of clean snow (powdery works best)
  • Bowl for mixing
  • Condensed milk (a small or medium can)
  • Vanilla (about a teaspoon)
  • Chocolate syrup (optional)
  • Sprinkles, fruit or nuts (optional)
  • Space in the freezer for leftovers and a freezable container


Gather snow, about 8-10 cups, into a large container or bowl (easiest is to just scrape off the top layer of powdery snow)

Scoop some snow into a bowl, and sprinkle vanilla over the snow (about 1 tsp)

Pour condensed milk over the snow, depending on how much snow you collected. Start in 1/4-1/2 cup increments (or more if you prefer creamier)

Mix it all together (we used a fork)

Add more snow for the desired consistency

Scoop it out into individual bowls, put the rest of the mixture in a freezable container and freeze for later

Serve as is, or sprinkle with nuts, fruit or top with chocolate sauce (or whatever other toppings you love)
