I'm sure by now you've done this, if not it's not too late. When was the last time you made a snow cone using real snow? If it's been awhile, or if you've never done it, here's a quick and easy recipe for you. Just hit play on the video and in no time you'll be enjoying a frosty, frozen, flavorful treat. It's one of the easiest DIY treats around and the flavors and possibilities are nearly endless. We just got more snow yesterday evening so it's pilled up, fresh and ready to be scooped into a cup and used.

It's a super easy process, you can use fresh snow and just about any flavor you have on hand. That includes actual snow cone syrup, Kool Aid, soda, fruit drinks and just about anything and everything else that's flavored. I'm a big fan of the Pepsi and Dr. Pepper snow cone and making homemade peach smoothies using fresh snow, peaches, light and heavy cream, milk and vanilla extract. There's all kinds of crazy concoctions you can create using stuff you already have in the kitchen or pantry.

Plus it's something to do that can help break up the boredom of being stuck indoors, especially if you have kids. You can also make homemade snow ice cream. Get all the details and watch the quick the DIY video here. Hopefully the current forecast will remain true and we'll see a warm up by the weekend. This Friday will be one of the first days we've seen with temperatures over freezing since the storm hit. Hope you're staying safe, warm and are able to spend some time with family and friends while we wait for things to thaw out and melt away. Before it does why not enjoy a few snow cones or homemade snow ice cream.
