If you have fresh snow there are two things that we make to eat. Sugar on Snow and Snow Cream. Both are easy to make.
Snow cream--you need 4 cups of fresh , clean snow. 1/2 cup of milk, teaspoon of vanilla, sugar to taste. mix until it looks like soft ice cream and eat. I made this with eggnog. You could add other flavors.
Sugar on snow, heat maple syrup, pour over the fresh snow. ths syrup hardens up like sticy candy. I have never tried this with "fake" maple syurp but think that it should work.
Sugar on snow is a staple at spring dinners in New England. The kids love it.
