I was lucky growing up that my hometown was in between a small but busy city (Boston) and lots of farmland and country living (the rest of the state of NH). That meant in the fall, we got to go to those seasonal fairs full of garbage food and lots of livestock (and probably even more bad opinions and ignorance but that’s a story for another day).
One of my favorite treats was of course cotton candy. I surely got my fill of over the summer anyway, since I grew up spitting distance from probably one of the last local amusement parks that are not owned by Six Flags (I know this is hyperbolic but it feels pretty true). But nothing beats eating some cotton candy and fried dough, while your nostrils are assaulted by the smell of manure and pig pens.
Ok, lots of stuff probably beats that, but when I was a kid, it felt fun and magical. As long as I didn’t have to smell the manure for too long.
I digress, the real reason we’re gathered here at this blog post is to get the recipe for this cannabis-infused cotton candy (or should it be CANNDY?).
This one is a pretty simple recipe because it really relies on the equipment more than anything else. First of all, you’re going to need a cotton candy machine, like this one from Lowe’s (disclosure, this is an affiliate link). You’re also going to need some flavored flossing sugar (also an affiliate link), although technically that’s optional.
The other main ingredient here is obviously the cannasugar. I’m not going to republish the cannasugar instructions, instead, I’m going to redirect you to episode 14 of Lunch With Lo. I also go over the method for making cannabis-infused sugar in this episode (watch down below).
So to be fair, this is less of a recipe than a tutorial on how to use the cotton candy machine.
To mix up my flavored sugar, I used 1 tablespoon of cannabis-infused sugar, and 1 tablespoon of flavored flossing sugar. For this episode, I mixed up two flavors, totaling 4 tablespoons of sugar, but the final cotton candy that you’ll see at the end of the video was made with 2 tablespoons total. 1 tablespoon of the cannsugar and grape mix, and 1 tablespoon of cannasugar and orange.
Once you’ve mixed your cannasugar and flavored flossing sugar, you’ll just follow the instructions for your cotton candy machine. Mine can only take 1 tablespoon of sugar at a time.
