Homemade Snow Cone Syrup

July 1, 2011

We love snow cones! They are sweet, inexpensive, and pretty impressive for a group of kids playing in the kiddie pool. I recently found an ice shaver at the thrift store for $2.00. It certainly gets a workout around here. My youngest knows that it makes what we call snow. While she is teething, nothing hits the spot like a plain mug of snow and a giraffe spoon. 

Here is a recipe for snow cone syrup. Frankly, it is just simple syrup and a package of unsweetened Kool aid. The joy is in squirting it onto a fresh cup of snow that came out of a polar bear shaped ice shaver. Just ask my crew. 

I have come a long way from my own childhood, where we would put ice cubes in a bag and smash them with a hammer.
