You’ve either heard about The Great Snow Storm of 2013, or you’re in it right now. We’ve enjoyed Maple Syrup Snow Candy and Snow Ice cream in recent years. Even with single digit temps, my kiddos still love the cold stuff. Do yours?
This week, we tried snow cones just to spice things up.
I happened to purchase some Grenadine syrup last week, a tasty ingredient used for making various adult beverages. I’m not much of a drinker, so I had some on hand for an occasional Shirley Temple.
And then it snowed. And snowed some more. And it kept on.
So we went sledding, and gathered up some of that snow in a bowl, and used an ice cream scoop to dish it into glasses.
It worked best to scoop in the snow, add a drizzle of syrup, and stir. Add more snow or syrup as needed. There’s really no strict recipe here, only the stuff of dreams.
My kids asked for more. I bet yours will, too.
And then, moms and dads, you can use that Grenadine for your own adult concoction. ‘Cause after nearly a week of school closings, you’re gonna need it.
