Snowflake Food Fun

Depending on where you live, some of you have too much snow. Some of you don’t have enough snow. Some of you want snow. Some of you don’t want snow.  Some of you have never seen snow (wow). 

While this winter I’m in the “have too much snow” category…I still think snow is beautiful. It truly is lovely and fun and wintery and happy. On one of our snowy days last week, the sun was shining, making the snow look like glitter falling from the sky. It was SO cool!!

Whether you’re in a place that has no snow and you’d like to pretend to have snow…or whether you’re in a place like I am and need to just embrace the snow and celebrate God’s (freezing cold) beauty…here are some fun (and very inexpensive) snowflake creations. All of them involve food…because I can’t help it. It’s what I do.

Melting Snowflakes

Breakfast Snowcakes

Funnel Flakes

The Real Deal

Follow it all up with Homemade Hot Cocoa or Warm Vanilla Soother

Kinda makes all this winter weather seem like fun, huh?  There’s snow end to the fun you can have with snowflakes if you really put your mind to it! (Feel free to roll your eyes at that one.)

Have any more snowflake creation ideas to share?

    What’s that? You want me to go make hot chocolate? Well, if you insist!

    OK, actually, everything in my whole house is packed. But maybe a second cup of coffee.

    Also, I really need to try that vanilla soother soon! It sounds so wonderful!

    Having been born in Iowa and raised in northern Missouri, I was delighted with such a treat as snow ice cream every winter while growing up. Not only is it fun for kids, but it’s really delicious.

    Very cute! :D

    Here in Seattle, we’ve not had snow yet this Winter, and I don’t mind a bit! ;) Maybe in a few more years I’ll miss the Midwest’s winters a little more. ;)

    Would you mind adding a link back to KTT?? Thanks! :)

    It all sounds yummy, but unfortunately, even though we have snow here, we would never dream of eating it. We live to close to chemical valley in Sarnia (across the border from Port Huron, Michigan) and our snow is way too poluted. If you melt it, you see all sort of stuff swimming in the water and I don’t think it would be good for us. If we’re ever somewhere where I thought we would actually be eating smog free snow, maybe!

    I made the snow ice cream today with the boys I nanny (ages 9 and 12). They really loved to make it and also eating it! And I liked eating it too!:-) Thanks for the idea!
