Cotton candy it's a favorite treat of kids - one that they can't get enough of! Why not surprise your youngsters with an extra special treat this summer - cotton candy served ice cream style!

This recipe calls for cotton candy syrup - however - if you can't find any syrup - we'll show you how to make your own.

Homemade cotton candy syrup works pretty well, however, it doesn't produce that perfect cotton candy flavor that a high quality store-bought syrup would.

Be sure to dye your ice cream blue or pink and it will be sure to also have the look of cotton candy!

So have fun and enjoy!

Servings: Ten 1/2 cup servings
