Watermelon Snow Cones

Snow cones that are one in a melon.

You will need:

 

Green party cups

Nostalgia Electrics Retro Snow Cone machine

Watermelon syrup (recipe below)

Mini chocolate chips

 

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 - I used the Kool Aid recipe for these.

 

Snow Cone Syrup recipe

2 cups white sugar

1.  Combine sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to boil.

2.  Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes

3.  Remove and stir in Kool Aid.

4.  Cool completely - very important you don't want your fluffy ice to be well, water.

 

Directions

 

1.  Crush ice with your Nostalgia snow cone machine.

 

2.  Scoop out the fluffy icy goodness into the green party cups.

 

3.  Pour watermelon syrup into a plastic squeeze bottle. 

 

4.  Squeeze syrup in the middle of the ice, making a nice pink circle

, leaving a ring of plain white ice around the edges.

 

5.  Sprinkle mini chocolate chips in the middle.

 

Enjoy!
