Being the middle of summer, we are loving our ice shaver I purchased at a garage sale for only $1. We use it quite a bit to make snow cones. YUM!
There are some yummy flavors of snow cone syrup at the store. Root beer, grape, cotton candy, lemon lime...you name it. We bought 4 containers of syrup from Walmart for $1.50 each a few weeks ago. Not super cheap but still better than taking my kids to the Snow Shack to pay for snow cones.
However, I ran across THIS POST from Skip to My Lou on how to make your own snow cone syrup. Genius! I love making things homemade but I am not one to experiment with recipes. Now that I know how to do it, we will be making our own for sure. See if this coupon can sweeten the deal:
