As I was poking around my regular blogs I stumbled upon this YouTube video here http://youtu.be/auRNHI2nkIU
which has inspired me and my sister to try the recipe out and to share what we've learned.
The recipe for the candy is in fact dead easy make, it is the technique to magically change a solid puck of sugar into a cotton candy like consistency that is really the tricky bit.
Now where I live it is more likely known as Dragon's Beard candy
, but in essence it is a type of pulled candy like taffy. It can also be described as a hand-pulled cotton candy
Bare in mind that we're amateurs at making this, so the end result is not pretty and if this is your first time making this do not expect it to turn out perfectly until you have made it a few times.
You can find other names for this candy here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon%27s_beard_candy
for educational purposes.
Now onwards to the next step...
