Last month I taught preschool as a part of a preschool with a group of mom's. Our topic was snow and for our treat we had snowcones. I got a snowcone maker a few years ago and have had a lot of fun with it. But this was my first attempt at making my own syrup. I made the syrup the way I make my maple syrup and it turned out too thick. That said it was delicious. Here is the recipe with a thinner syrup.
Snow Cones (printer friendly)
2 C water
2 C sugar
1. In a saucepan combine the water and sugar. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute. Remove from stove.
You can flavor the whole batch or separate into different bowls for flavoring. Add about 1/8 tsp flavoring to each bowl. Taste and add more flavoring as needed. Color with food coloring if desired
I made, pina colada, lemon, and raspberry.
