Snow Cone Sweetness

A super fun and sweet way to keep cool this summer is to make your own snow cones! These happen to be my favorite treat whenever I go to the state fair. 

 

Snow cones simply make me happy. Fluffy ice drenched in your favorite flavors, the possibilities are endless.

 

Now you can make them yourself. Crunchy fluffy goodness any time you want!!!! Can life get any better?!!!

 

Oh, did you know you can make them cute?

 

Well I did - AND it's super easy! 

The cuteness starts here - with the Nostalgia Retro Snow Cone Maker. I KNOW, RIGHT? So cute!

 

But don't let the adorableness deceive you - this bad boy crushes your own ice cubes and creates fluffy icy goodness in seconds. 

 

Super affordable and looks great on your counter or in a game room. 

Next you'll want some syrup for your snow cones. 

 

If you are like me and want a super fast shortcut, use unfrozen Otter Pops. Serious - just snip off the top of the liquid Otter Pop and pour over your snow cone! Mmmmm....

 

OR you can purchase syrup in the store or online, or make your own using Kool Aid
