My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Homemade Sno Cone Syrup

Homemade Sno Cone Syrup

If you've know me, you know that I cannot resist any sort of sno cone.  Especially during the summer time!  Last year, with our move, I was only able to stop once in our old town and couldn't really find a stand here anywhere that wasn't a Tropical Sno.  So, I guess I can resist those stand because they are so dang expensive!   

This year I was determined to stop in at our new local one in front of the grocery store I primarily shop at.  I happened to be without my kids when I had that sweet craving.  I ended up paying $3.00 for the tiniest cup!!!  It was good, but highway robbery I tell ya!

That is when I became even more determined to figure something out that wasn't going to break the bank this year for our family of 5.  After a little research I came up with my own sweetalicious homemade syrup!!!  I already own a sno cone maker (the little plastic one from Pampered Chef), and it does the job just fine.  If you don't own an ice shaver, just buy small pebble ice and pulse it in your food processor or blender.

All it takes is 3 little ingredients and your family and friends will think your the coolest person on the block.  At least my kids do!

  2. Do you think Splenda or Stevia could be used instead of Sugar?

  3. Where did you get the pour containers? They look like ketchup bottles, but I like that they are clear. So fun. Thanks!
