Cotton Candy Ice Cream

This ice cream reminds me of being a kid at the carnival. Before we left, I’d always have to get a big bag of fluffy blue and white cotton candy. Just like that sugary sweet, this ice cream melts in your mouth.

Best of all this cotton candy ice cream recipe is no churn! I love no churn ice cream (like this Bubble Gum Ice Cream) as it is easy and quick to make.  Everyone goes crazy over this recipe, if you’ve never had it you need to try it. Cotton candy ice cream is great for birthday parties too!

How To Make Cotton Candy Ice Cream

How To Store Homemade Ice Cream

Ice cream should be stored in an air tight container. It will last about one month in the freezer.
If you find that it is starting to get freezer burn  ,you can add a layer of plastic wrap over the ice cream before adding the lid.
