What to do with all this snow outside... Try making some snow cones! Just make sure and use white snow! (or crushed ice from the freezer)
Here are two easy syrup recipes:
SNOW CONE SYRUP 1
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1 package unsweetened powdered drink mix, 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.
SNOW CONE SYRUP 2
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.
* While you can use sugarfree drink mix powder (such as Crystal Light), it makes for a super runny "syrup."
