Today I came across a magical new product called Duncan Hines Frosting Creations…COTTON CANDY FLAVOR (info here) Cotton candy? In convenient powder form much like kool-aide? I feel like I won the lottery. “Sugarplum Fairy” seemed a fitting name with the addition of chopped gumdrops. If I were an ice cream flavor I’m pretty sure it would be cotton candy with gumdrops – whimsical, blue, and sort of ridiculous.
1 13-oz. can light coconut milk
13 oz. almond milk (measure in the coconut can)
heaping 1/3 C sugar
2 stevia packets
1 packet Duncan Hines frosting creations Cotton Candy flavor
1/2 C gumdrops (optional) chopped, tossed with sugar to prevent sticking, and frozen
In a small saucepan combine the milks, sugar, and stevia. Heat until warm-hot just to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat, stir in the flavor pack. Revel in the beautiful blue hue. Refrigerate several hours, then run through an ice cream maker. In the last few minutes add the gumdrops. Freeze at least 1 hour before scooping.
