Are you ready for a super easy to make, yet super fun treat for hot summer days? This patriotic snow cones recipe will cool you off! They are easy to make with Kool-Aid packets and very inexpensive!
This is enough to make a nice BIG batch of snow cones. To make these extra fun to make, the syrup can be put in squirt bottles, which are also cheap to buy!
To serve your snow cones you can put them in any glass or container. BUT, to make them more fun (and authentic) you can serve them either in paper snow cone cups or in bright plastic snow cone cups like we have pictured above.
