How To: Make cotton candy without a machine at home

Make cotton candy without a machine at home

Okay, so just as a safety precaution before you dive right in and make yourself a batch of cotton candy at home, remember that melting sugar and corn syrup requires very high temperatures, so you could get burned if you're not careful. Make sure you keep a bowl of cool water next to you at all times just in case any of the hot stuff gets on your skin.

This is a great summertime treat to make for your kids and doesn't require you to purchase a clunky cotton candy maker, which means you'll also be saving lots of money. Read on for the written ingredients, then watch the video to get the how-to.

Ingredients
5 cups granulated sugar
1 1/3 cups light corn syrup
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. water
Flavoring (vanilla extract or other like peppermint extract)
Food color paste (or liquid)
Vegetable baking spray
