Recipes pictured are in bold below.

Maple Taffy at Country Living. Heat pure maple syrup to 240°F and pour it over clean snow. Just like in the Little House in the Big Woods!

Lemon-Ginger Snow at Martha Stewart. The "snow" here is a beautiful layer of whipped cream underneath a lemon jelly. We love these old-fashioned jellied desserts — they are making a comeback!

Raspberry-Blueberry Snow Cones at Epicurious. Snow cones in the winter? You could even use real snow!

Vanilla Snow from Alice Waters. A whipped, airy ice cream with egg whites that tastes like vanilla and feels like snowflakes on the tongue.

Phoebe Snow at Gourmet. A classic cocktail with a very interesting namesake.

Snowstorm Café at Food & Wine. A heavily spiked hot coffee drink to keep warm on a stormy day!

Floating Islands at Saveur. Meringue islands floating in custard, like miniature icebergs. Another retro dessert that's due for a comeback!

Snow Day Dinner at Bon Appétit. A whole menu for a snowy day, including saffron couscous and a Moroccan tagine.

Snow Eggs with Pistachio Custard and Chocolate Drizzle - Another take on floating islands; these look like little snowballs.

Igloo Cake at Martha Stewart. Cake, penguins, igloo built from frosting? Check!

Cherries in the Snow - This beautiful dessert is made from a milky white gelatin, cut into cubes and drizzled with cherries in port. So lovely!
