Yes, I do have a machine that shaves ice. I mean, why wouldn’t I? Everyone loves sno-cones. I used to buy big bottles of sno-cone syrup at the store (due to occasional laziness) and finally asked myself how hard could it really be to make some at home? The answer? It’s not hard at all and the homemade sno-cone syrup flavors are so much more bold. I keep a few different ones on hand in squeeze bottles, ready to make delicious sno-cones at a moment’s notice.
Here’s the ice shaver that I use.. It’s small, fairly cheap, and has held up for years. Just add a few ice cubes and turn it on and it starts shooting out perfectly shaved ice in an instant.
Also try my cherry limeade.

I admit it. I have a strange fascination with melting Peeps. Anita can’t even come into the kitchen when I’m melting them. She just can’t stand seeing them ‘die’. So she was nowhere to be found when I made ice cream with Peeps syrup.
The other day I made Shamrock Peep Rice Krispies treats that came out rather good. Then I came across this idea to melt Peeps to make syrup for ice cream at the We Are Not Martha blog. Another opportunity to melt Peeps? Sign me up! Heck tried it over Rice Krispies treats too!
For an awesome milkshake made with peeps, check out our toasted peep milkshake. Ice cream is also fantastic topped with my slow cooker dulce de leche.
