Blue Ice (The Edible Kind)

If you Google "blue ice" you will see first a reference to the frozen innards of an airplane toilet bowl and, shortly thereafter, the reusable freezer pack. Luckily, this is neither.

It's snow with blue sugar water poured on top. It is yummy. And blue. And probably one of the most ridiculous things to consume while playing in the snow because it's the coldest possible food--yes, I will call it that--and it's messy. But, it sure is fun to compare blue tongues.

(I was going to link to a recipe for making sugar water, but everything I could find online was so much more complicated than it needs to be. I just heated half a cup of water in the microwave, stirred in half a cup of sugar until it dissolved and then dropped food coloring in.)

  1. No bits of dirt, bark or stones in there?? Looks funny, and like they enjoyed it.
