How to make cotton candy with the machine

  1. Place the prepared sugar in the central container. For this we use the measuring spoon that the machine brings, it can be 1 or 2 portions, depending on the amount of cotton we want to prepare.
  2. Turn on the cotton candy machine to heat the sugar and melt it. Some people first heat the machine, once hot, turn it off and then add the sugar. This is not recommended.
  3. Once the threads of sugar begin to come out, we begin to collect this with a wooden stick, turning successively so that the cotton forms like a cloud. The first time it is possible that this cloud is not as beautiful as possible, but with the use of the machine, the experience will give us the ability to make a spectacular cotton cloud.

If you want to do it this way you should be careful with a burn with caramel sugar, which is very painful since melted sugar sticks on the skin and can cause severe burns.
