It's HOT outside! The kids are home, they want fun things to do all day long, and they want to eat. My kids eat all day long! I feed them breakfast, and 30 minutes later they want a snack. Then, it's lunchtime, and snack again. Then, they have the nerve to ask me what's for dinner?? Really? Didn't they just eat? ~Sigh~ So, I fix them dinner and then of course dessert. Homemade Snow Cone Syrup for snow cones is perfect!
Next time your crew is wanting a Snack on a hot summers day why not make Snow Cones?? One of my readers, Angela, from McCalla, AL sent me this winner! I guess I just never thought about making my own Snow Cone Syrup. Angela sent me this email, and it won me over! What a great idea! You can make it in any number of flavors, and you could even lower the sugar in the syrup if you wanted. My kids want to try lemonade flavored next! Thanks, Angela for sharing such a great recipe, and now I am sharing it with you!
