We all love our share of sweets and chocolates and have irresistible cravings every once in a while. Getting infected with a sweet tooth is so common these days that there are very few of us who manage to escape from its shackles. Ice creams, cupcakes, candies and tarts! Oh! How we love them all. And yes, the best of the lot is cotton candy. Soft, sweet and delicious, it melts in our mouth within seconds, leaving us craving for more.
Well, savoury sweet cotton candy just got better with our new recipe. You can now make weed cotton candy all by yourself and that too in a jiffy. And we’ve all heard this one thing about weed before – it is medicinal and has its own set of benefits. It sure does and infused with the sugary sweetness of cotton candy, it makes for a killer combination.
So here’s an easy-to-fix weed cotton candy recipe just for you —
- 2-3 weed candies
- 2 scoops flossine
- mortar and pestle
- cotton candy machine
- lollipop sticks
- measuring scoop
Crush 2-3 weed candies using the mortar and pestle. Add flossine to the powder and crush it again. It’s important to ensure that the powdered candy is smooth and fine.
Next, the powdered mixture needs to be spun into candy with the help of the cotton candy machine. To use the candy machine correctly, it’s important to set it on a steady, flat and smooth surface. Also, ensure that the machine is placed at a safe height, away from the reach of children and pets. Once the necessary precautions are taken, the cotton candy machine is set to be used.
Once in place, turn on the candy machine’s mortar and fill the floss head with about 2 scoops of the candy-flossine mixture. You might want to make sure that you are not filling more than 90% of the floss head.
The secret to spinning the perfect cotton candy is getting the details right, starting from the very beginning till the very last step.
After about 30-40 seconds of turning on the heat, you will see threads of the candy forming in the machine. Dip a lollipop stick inside and gather the cotton candy by twirling the stick around. Do not rotate the stick itself, but move it in a circular motion instead. Avoid touching the edges and turn off the machine once the cotton candy is done.
After a couple of trials, you’ll be able to spin the perfect weed cotton candy, much to the amazement of those around you!
It’s fluffy, it’s sweet and it has weed in it! What’s not to love about it? And of course, we almost forgot, it’s sumptuously pink as well — our very own cotton candy at its best!
