Snow cone syrup recipe with just three ingredients (one is water!).

When it’s hot outside (and it gets really hot and humid here), I want snow cones. We live just a few blocks from a shaved ice shop, but Nate hates how much we pay there for just sugar and ice.

So last year we decided to buy a  little snow cone machine (similar to this one).

Snow cone syrup recipe with just three ingredients! We'll be using this a lot this summer! And it is awesome. It’s great for birthday parties (we paired them with these cones and straws), play dates, and impromptu family dinners in the back yard.

Of course, a good snow cone requires good snow cone syrup. Sure, you can buy your own bottle of syrup from the store, but why not make your own? Especially since there are only three ingredients (one of which is water) and an endless combination of flavors! Ready for the recipe? You won’t believe how simple it is.

Homemade Snow Cone Syrup Recipe

  • Mix 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water.
  • Boil.
  • Remove from heat and add 1/2-1 packet unsweetened drink mix (like koolaid).
  • Pour your syrupy goodness over shaved ice and enjoy!

Want even more good news? If you make too much, you can FREEZE the leftovers for next time. It never really hardens, so you no need to defrost before you use it again. Snow cones all summer with very little prep or cleanup? Yes please!

For parties and play dates, we put the syrup in condiment bottles (like these) to minimize the mess and hassle. 

And guess what? This snow cone syrup is also EXCELLENT over fresh, real snow in winter! It’s such a tasty way to enjoy winter!

Snow cones aren’t the only thing our little one likes to eat. You may be surprised by the main ingredient in our two-year-old’s new favorite cookie! Check out the recipe here: Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies.

      Bummer! Thanks for the feedback! What about just using sugar and water to make syrup and then adding in some fruit juice or pureed fruit for flavor?
