You will need
    • plug (can be replaced with beaters or chopsticks);
    • the saucepan;
    • 0.5 cups of water;
    • 1.5 Cup of sugar;
    • 1-2 drops of vinegar.
So, first decide what will keep cotton candy. It could be the plugs, Chinese sticks, beaters or something like that. It is important that these items be securely fixed on the table in a vertical position, for example, propping them with something heavy from different angles.
When the "holders" ready, you can take the sugar syrup. Mix half a Cup of water, half Cup sugar and a few drops of food vinegar. If you want to make colored cotton candy, add to the syrup a little food coloring. Send the mixture into the pot or pan and heat over low heat, stirring constantly. Bringing the mixture to a boil, remove the pan from the heat, let the syrup cool slightly and heat again. Repeat the procedure 4-5 times. The syrup should be Golden brown, but not dark. Constantly watch its condition, so it does not burnt. In the end it should be a thick Golden mass, which is well stretched.
And now the most interesting. Spare dip a fork (or whisk) in hot syrup and drive her around prepared in advance of holders, rolling them sugar thread to volumetric layer of cotton candy. If the sugar layer is too loose, should be pinched gently in his hand, thereby reducing the size.

When the wool is ready and the remnants of syrup, freeze, take the time to get rid of them. Split the syrup into small pieces, and get gold sugar candy.
Believe me, your family will appreciate such a surprise. And what a joy waiting for the youngest! And don't worry if your wool will not be as pretty as store bought. Skill comes with experience.
