When a rogue snowstorm hit sunny Savannah this past week we had a little sweet carny fun! This Snow Cotton Candy is a perfect snow day treat for the littles and the bigs!
Snow Cotton Candy
What you need:
Bubble Gum flavoring (available HERE), you can also sub any extract of your choice
Pink food coloring
Thick white paper made into paper cones
What to do:
In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together 2 cups water and 1/2 cup sugar. Heat just until sugar has dissolved (you are making a “less sugary” version of a simple syrup). Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Stir a few drops of bubble gum flavoring (or any extract of your choice) into the sugar water until desired taste is reached.
Stir enough pink food coloring into the mixture until a rich pink color. Transfer mixture to a spray bottle.
Pack the paper cones with fresh snow and pile snow on top to mimic a pile of cotton candy.
Spray snow with the flavored and colored water mixture.
YAY!!! It’s Snow Cotton Candy!! Let the circus begin.
