Hiya, so this was a request so here is how to do it!
You will need:
1 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
V-rack (just a holding rack in the shape of a V, look it up :) )
Mix water, light corn syrup, and sugar in a saucepan. Place the food thermometer in the saucepan, and heat on medium heat until the liquid reaches 300 degrees F, stirring occasionally.
Remove the pan from heat and pour the sugar solution into a heat-proof bowl. Add 3 to 5 drops of food coloring in your choice of color, and stir thoroughly with an open-ended whisk.
Lay several sheets of newspaper over a flat working surface, such as a tabletop or counter, and set the v-rack on top of this. The newspaper will protect your work surface from the sugar solution, and cut down on clean-up.
Submerge the end of the whisk in the sugar mixture and drizzle across the v-rack. Repeat several times to create several strands of cotton candy.
Allow one to two minutes for the cotton candy to dry, and then collect the strands from the v-rack using a fork.
Roll the cotton candy strands continually to create a large ball on the end of a fork. Place in a paper cone, or eat directly from the fork, as desired.
