Christmas Cotton Candy

Santa was kind enough to bring one of the Sweetpeas a cotton candy machine. I must admit, it is kind of fun…

First we get to choose from these pastel colored sugars.

Bubble Gum, Raspberry (why is artificial raspberry always blue?!) and good old fashioned C&H.

We of course chose the good ole fashioned plain ole C&H, pure can sugar, from Hawaii, sweet Hawaii.

Let the machine heat up, add some sugar and these beautiful spiderweb like sugar strands start floating through the air.

Final product. It was pretty cool. 1 Tablespoon of sugar made 3 of this sized cloud of perfect sweetness. We forgot to sprinkle with cinnamon. Next time! As I am sure there will BE a next time…many next times.

Oh did I mention it was 84 degrees here in southern California on Christmas day?!

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. And may the New Year be even better full of many blessings.

Can't wait to hear from you!
