These Cotton Candy Cookies are now my son’s absolute favorite cookies. They are soft and chewy … and I cant forget the most important part, they taste like cotton candy!!
Ah, cotton candy! Who doesn’t love it?! I know that I’ve been obsessed with it ever since I tried it for the first time, when I was a kid. I don’t remember getting to eat it much, probably because it’s pure sugar. It was a rare but amazing treat. I don’t know a kid in a world that doesn’t go bananas at a carnivals over the cotton candy treat.
I know my baby sister absolutely loves it and I’m a little sad that she didn’t get a chance to try these cookies. Of course, I will make it for her when she comes to visit. Actually, I will make her bake it herself since I’m teaching her how to cook and bake every time she comes over. She won’t be able to say no to making these cookies!
From the first time I made these cookies, we all fell in love. Little man is obsessed with “the blue cookies!” He’s asked me to make them twice already! It’s not a problem because they are so easy to make and I think they are scrumdelicious too!
