Put the spiked snow cone syrup in the fridge for 4 hours or until chilled. You can place the containers in the fridge 30 minutes before you plan to make the snow cones.
*** This step is really important**
If you add the syrup to the snow cones without chilling it first, the ice will melt at a very fast pace. Chilling the syrups helps keeps the ice from melting as quickly.
