    Default Homemade Snow Cones

    Snow Cones !

    Warm weather is here and summer is on it's way.
    Don't wait for the festivals and fairs to treat the kids
    to snow cones. Make them yourself!

    Buy small paper cups to place your snow cones in.
    Look for markdowns on partyware to keep around
    this summer for snow cones and other treats. You
    can crush the ice in your blender. Mine has a setting
    for this, or you can crush by hand in a clean tea towel
    with a rolling pin. Here are two easy syrup recipes:

    Snow Cone Syrup

    You'll need:
    2 cups sugar
    3/4 cup water
    1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid, any flavor

    Place the sugar and water in a medium pan
    and bring to a full boil. Remove from heat and
    stir in the Kool-Aid. Cool to room temperature,
    then place in the refrigerator until chilled. Pour
    over crushed iced.

    Another easy syrup:

    1 4 ounces of sweetened flavored drink mix powder
    3/4 cup hot water

    Mix the water and the drink mix. Cool and drizzle over
    crushed ice.

    By the way, there are all kinds of tidbits out there on
    the first "snow cones". It appears Chinese Emperors
    may have flavored snow with fruit and honey. Also
    Native Americans may have sweetened snow with
    maple syrup. Though the rich and famous create
    sophisticated fruited ices such as sorbet, I have a
    feeling our kids wouldn't be interested. Hand them a
    snow cone and they are happy!
