Indiana’s weather is fickle. You may be able to go outside for a photo shoot on a warm day in January.

Outdoor Photo Shoot–in January!

And then find the state buried under several inches snow by a freak snowstorm at the end of March.

Spring in Indiana!

That’s Indiana. So be it.

We’ve somehow managed to miss the other snow storms this year, so last night we crammed a winter’s worth of snowy fun into one evening. Sledding, shoveling, a snowman, and snow cones.

That’s right, folks. We scooped up bowls of fresh, yummy snow and ate it as dessert. 

I don’t make a habit of eating things off the ground, but I’ll make an exception for freshly fallen snow. It’s part of the whimsy of childhood and the magic of winter.

I know you can add vanilla, milk, and sugar to snow to make “ice cream,” but we decided to go the sno(w) cone route. This same syrup recipe works great for shaved ice in summer!

Homemade Snow Cone Syrup

  • 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 snow and enjoy!

So the next time you find yourself in a freak snowstorm, you have my permission to make and enjoy a real snow cone. Just do me a favor and don’t eat the yellow snow…
