Let's have a Blizzard (with no snow)
One of Caroline's favorite Christmas gifts was a DQ Blizzard Maker (thank you Aunt Beckie and Uncle Aaron). Now I can understand the attraction. Growing up each Christmas I would want a snoopy snow cone maker. I never got one (and really never needed one...who eats snow cones in SD in the winter?!)
Anyway, since December 25 Caroline's been asking when we can make our blizzards. I've promised her that 'someday soon' we would. Finally after many weeks of anticipation, we finally opened the machine up.
Since one batch makes about a half cup, it's the perfect size for a little treat (when split among 3 or 4 people).
Caroline very carefully added the ingredients and mixed for about ten minutes. And she was rewarded with what she thinks is the best tasting ice cream EVER!
