Snow Ice Cream
Makes about 6 servings

    8 cups Freshly fallen snow
    2 Cups cream
    1- 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
    2 tsp. Vanilla extract

    In a chilled stainless steel bowl whisk the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla together to a soft peak, and the whisk leaves trails behind it in the cream mixture. Next get some freshly fallen snow and fold it in. The variable is the snow; light and fluffy use more, coarse and heavy, use less.

Malted Milk Chocolate Creme Bruleé
Makes 6 portions

    4 Cups Heavy Cream
    ¼ Cup malted milk
    5 egg yolks
    ¼ Cup sugar
    a Pinch of salt
    3 oz. Milk Chocolate

    Scald heavy cream and malted milk in a stainless steel sauce pan. While the cream is heating up, combine egg yolks, salt and sugar in a stainless steel bowl and whisk until it's thick and pale. Gently add the hot cream into egg mixture and then stir in chocolate. Let the mixture rest for a few minutes to cool the melt the chocolate. Bake in a roasting pan in a hot water bath covered with foil with the corners vented at 300°F with 35 minutes or until set.
