How to make Cotton Candy!

Posted on: July 28, 2010


Kids love cotton candy but don’t let them eat much it can cause cavity because of excess sugar!  it is fun to make cotton candy and it’s not that hard why don’t you do with your children? Check out the recipe

Cotton Candy

5 cups white granulated sugar
1 cup Water
1.25 cups light
corn syrup or honey
Food coloring and/or flavor of choice

Cover the kitchen floor and any surface near your workspace with newspaper.
Lay out a long sheet of wax paper.
Combine the water, sugar and syrup in a deep saucepan and bring the temperature to 310 degrees. This is called the hardball stage. Be very careful with hot sugar, it can burn you.

If you want colored cotton candy, divide the sugar-syrup and add in a few drops of color to each.

Now the fun part, Take a long fork and dip it into the sugar, Over the wax paper quickly swing your hand back and forth, creating thin long strings of sugar. Do this quickly 4 or 5 times. Gently, but quick;y, pull the fibers together with your hand, forming nice big, fluffy cotton balls You want to do this before the sugar cools completely.

To Make an edible stick to put the cotton candy on, just pour a 1/4 wide by 5 inch long strip of the sugar onto the wax paper, allowing a bulb at the bottom and top. After it dries, gently push the cotton candy ball on the top. Else you can use popsicle sticks or even paper towel rollers -or none at all.

Repeat with as much sugar as you like.
You can also use flavorings like lemon or cherry, in which case you can add 2 tablespoons of cheery juice or lemon juice to the sugar when cooking.
