This fair food at home Homemade Snow Cone Recipe will have you brainstorming of all the wonderful flavored snow cones that you could make. Snow Cones are always a fair and festival favorite. The Snow Cone stand will be the first stop we will be making when we hit the festival next week. My kiddos are seriously addicted. I made all of us Snow Cones yesterday after school as they are so easy and inexpensive to make at home. I now they will want to spend some of their festival $’s on Snow Cones they must consume Ice ha ha. We are super excited that the Cincinnati festivals will soon be under way.
Hitting the festival without spending much will be my main goal. We Have enjoyed Walking Tacos, Funnel Cake, Mini Corn Dogs, Soft Pretzels and these Snow Cones so I know I will not be spending as much on fair food.
The kiddos were so excited that I made Red, White and Blue syrups for their snow cones at home. We all agreed that they would make a GREAT July 4th treat. We plan to set up a Homemade Snow Cone Station so all of our guests can enjoy Homemade Snow Cones too!
Making this Homemade Snow Cones Recipe is so simple. I can even let my teenage kiddos make it when we run low. Just grab some Sugar (Lot’s of it, ha ha) and some Kool-Aid for this simple recipe. We will quite often use concentrated juice too. You can see my other Snow Cones at Home Recipe here from last year.

I purchased these adorable Ninja Brand Snow Cone and Ices Maker Kit + 200 Spoon Strass & Ice Pop Set.on Amazon. I loved the $11.45 price as they were just perfect. The set includes the silicone cups, straws, snow cone holders and also the 4 frozen treat molds with easy slip lids. I also picked up some of the Snow Cone Cup Holders (Set of 4) with the colors as I like the colored holders ha ha. I plan to pick up a few more sets for our July 4th Snow Cone Station Idea.
