To make sure your Snow Ice Cream is the best follow our helpful tips.

Tip #1:  Make sure you get to the snow before the kids or animals start running around in it.

Tip #2: If you know snow is coming, place a clean container outside to catch the snow.

Tip #3  : Make sure you make it when you are going to eat it because this does not freeze like ice cream but instead turns to ice.
