It is pretty hot here for March and April in St. Louis. I bought a snow cone machine for 20 bucks off of Amazon and the kids really enjoy it. They get their hydration and have a afternoon cool treat. It’s a lot of fun. Here is how I made the snow cone syrup. I know I am almost always trying to find a way to avoid artificial color and flavors… but it is only a teaspoon of it or two per serving. I often use Crystal Light, too.
Snow Cone Syrup
1- .22 oz. package of Kool-Aid (grape was yummy, but you pick your favorite)
2 cups sugar (I used half Splenda and half regular sugar with great results)
1 cup water
1. Mix everything in a saucepan. Heat to boiling for 1-2 minutes.
