Cotton Candy Ice Cream
This simple homemade, no-churn cotton candy ice cream makes for a delightfully creamy sweet treat that is perfect for parties or summer afternoons.
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream, (35% cream)
- 1 (10-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon cotton candy extract
- Red and blue food coloring
- Sprinkles, optional
Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Whip the whipping cream for approximately 4 minutes until soft peaks form.
Stir in the vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and cotton candy extract, and then split the mixture in half into two bowls.
Using your food coloring, dye one bowl of the ice cream pink and the other bowl light blue.
Pour the pink ice cream into the loaf pan. Smooth down with a spoon or spatula.
Drop spoonfuls of the blue ice cream randomly over the pink ice cream, and then use the spoon to swirl it in.
Place a piece of cling wrap on top of the ice cream batter letting it rest right on top of the cream. Cover the whole pan with foil.
Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.
Scoop, top with sprinkles, and serve!
- Lining the loaf pan with parchment paper prior to filling will make cleaning up much easier.
- Chill your condensed milk, heavy whipping cream and loaf tin in the fridge before you start – it will make everything freeze more easily.
- If you are using gel food coloring, you will need fewer drops to achieve the desired color than if you are using liquid food coloring.
- Top with a little cotton candy for a fun party look.
Higher fat content ice cream melts quicker than the lower fat ice creams so have those cups or cones ready!
