Do you remember growing up and playing at your friends’ houses and there was always that mom who had the good snacks? Oh come on…you know the snacks..
Well my mom was not that mom. I think with her having grown up with seven siblings her frugality would say “ it is snack time everyone go home and get their own snack, Beckie come inside and have some of this…”
Ok so I embellish a bit. I never did have this for snack but she did force these down my throat many-a-times growing up at the dinner table.
Then there was Mrs. Awesome Snack Mom. We would be playing and she would bring out these…. I loved Mrs. Awesome Snack Mom. I vowed when I grew up I would become Mrs. Awesome Snack Mom. And I have. I heard through the grapevine that the boys a few doors down told their mom that I have the best snacks. I have succeeded in life. I am Mrs. Awesome Snack Mom.
Where am I going with this. Well here is a frugal…yet awesome treat to make the kiddos in your neighborhood. It is way more awesome in the summer but because it is snowing outside it made me think of this.
Snow Cone Syrup
1 cup of hot water
1 envelope of Kool-Aid
2 cups of sugar
All you do is mix it all together and pour it into a squirt bottle. It tastes so yummy and all the neighborhood kids will come running. Add some shaved ice or real snow and you have yourself an awesome snack summer or winter
