Snow Cone Syrup
2 c. white sugar
1 c. water
1 package (.13 oz) of Kool-Aid (or other flavored drink mix)
Mix sugar and water together and bring to a boil; boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in the drink mix. Allow to cool, and store in a container for pouring. Pour over shaved ice to flavor.
You can crush ice in your blender, with a hand mixer or just buy it pre-crushed if you don't have a fancy machine. You can also buy some inexpensive (under $30) hand crank machines at Wal-Mart, Target or Amazon.
This is such a fun idea! And hopefully if I can't have summer outside, we can enjoy a glimpse of it!
