Celebrate Cotton Candy Day with This Spice-Scented Recipe
Infusing plain granulated sugar with cardamom, cloves, vanilla, cinnamon and orange rind dresses up this carnival favorite for the holidays.
- 10 cardamom pods
- 10-15 black peppercorns
- Orange peel from a navel orange
- Whole vanilla bean
- Cinnamon stick
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- Edible glitter
- Paper cotton candy cones
1: Place everything in a jar and shake to mix. Let sit for up to a week to allow sugar to infuse.
2: Right before your party or event, heat up your cotton candy machine for 10 minutes. Stop the machine, and once it has stopped spinning, add one tablespoon of your spiced sugar.
3: Twirl the cotton candy onto the cone and then sprinkle with edible glitter. Serve immediately.
