Hand-Pulled Cotton Candy
Who needs a machine when you can make your own colorful and delicious cotton candy by hand?!
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup corn syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vinegar
- 1 cup water
- Food color/extracts of your choice
- A lot of cornstarch for coating
- In a saucepan, combine all ingredients and heat on medium-high. The mixture needs to heat slowly for about 20-25 minutes, until it reaches 269°F, so monitor your heat to adjust as needed.
- Once it reaches temperature, immediately remove the saucepan from the burner and allow to cool to at least 212°F. Transfer to plastic quart containers to cool until it turns into a firm disk.
