A ferocious hail storm hit us this afternoon.
Actually, it was a graupel storm. Graupel is a small, soft hail, which piles up to look almost exactly like Dippin’ Dots.
That’s what my kids saw, anyway, as they grabbed bowls, ran outside in bare feet, and scooped up enough graupel to open a roadside frozen treat stand.
With flavoring applied, it did kind of taste like Dippin’ Dots.
We’ll call it Graupel Delight. It will be a dessert staple in our house for quite awhile now that the kids have packed the freezer full of the stuff.
