This machine has been getting a workout…
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 .22 ounce unsweetened powder drink mix
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then immediately remove from heat. Allow to cool. We used a funnel to put syrup into a recycled bottle.
Pour syrup over shaved ice (our machine makes great soft shaved ice) and enjoy!
I know I know, this is not healthy and I am one of those moms that won’t buy sugared cereal—- sorry I am a bit of a hypocrite (especially since I feed my kids this too)! Snow cones are definitely a treat, one we love! Making the snow cone syrup yourself is so much cheaper than buying the flavored syrup from the store and it tastes better.
Wouldn’t these Reusable Silicone Snow Cone Cups be handy!
