Apparently, my latest Redemption River novel has made an early appearance on the shelves. Here's the cover. I hope you like the book better than I like the cover! :-)

Snow Ice Cream

Snow Ice Cream
1 honking big bowl (3 qts.) of clean snow (dry snow works best)

1 cup sugar

2-3 heaping Tablespoons of cocoa

1 Tsp. vanilla

Milk (usually about one cup or so). Can also use evaporated milk, half and half, or cream.

In small bowl mix cocoa and sugar together. Sprinkle this over the snow and mix in lightly and quickly with a fork, breaking up lumps, until the color is chocolate enough for you. I like mine to look German chocolate at this point because the cocoa will intensify. Now, add the vanilla and then gradually add the milk a little at a time, mixing lightly with the fork, until the mixture is thick, slightly moist, and mounds up.

Taste and adjust the sugar and cocoa if needed. If too much chocolate, add more snow!
Now pig out. Your tongue will freeze, but happily so. Put what you aren’t eating immediately into the freezer.
