Patriotic Snow Cones {easy & fun recipe}

Get into the Patriotic mood with this fun and cool recipe for Patriotic Snow Cones!

This is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day. Summer is one of my favorite times of the year. Living in Michigan we have to take full advantage of all the sun that we can get… especially after this last winter. I love all the festivities that happen around Memorial Day and 4th of July weekend. I also love being able to entertain during the summer in our backyard with close friends and family. This fun recipe is a great treat for kids and adults.
