REAL Snow Cones

I don't know about you, but we have had snow fall the last couple days. So I decided it was a perfect opportunity to make REAL snow cones. Let me tell you this was great fun for the whole family. I like to find ways to get the kids involved in cooking and this was a fun project and it couldn't be easier.

How is all you need!

1. a large metal bowl.
2. a spoon
3. serving bowls or glasses
4. 1 packet of Kool-Aid
5. 1 Cup of Sugar
6. 16oz of cold water

When the snow starts to fall, place a large metal bowl outside to collect the snow. Make sure it is up off the ground in a spot that it will stay clean. While you bowl is collecting the snow. Take 1 packet of Kool-Aid, 1 cup of sugar and 16oz of cold water and mix well in a bowl. Then pour in a squirt bottle and put in refrigerator until needed.
Once you have enough snow. Bring you bowl inside and spoon the snow into you serving bowls or glasses. Make sure to pack you snow together, so it makes a nice dense ball. Then pour your syrup slowly over your snow. Be generous with the syrup and cover the snow well, but be careful not to melt all your snow.

Serve and enjoy the sweet flavor and the sweet smiles that come with this fun snack!
