Also, can you make cotton candy without a machine?
Mix the sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt in a large heavy-bottomed pot, then stir over medium-high heat until all the sugar is melted. Use the thermometer to make sure the mixture has reached 320 degrees. Transfer sugar mixture into a large heat-safe bowl. This will keep the sugar from continuing to cook and burn.
Similarly, can you use regular sugar for cotton candy? Aside from its colorings and flavorings, cotton candy is just plain old granulated sugar. Dry additives give it its flavor and aroma, either in premixed, ready-to-use form or as a powder that can be added separately to a sack of sugar. The magic isn't in the sugar itself, but in the production method.

Can you use Kool Aid to make cotton candy?
Cotton Candy Sugar For me, cotton candy is much more about the texture than the flavor, so this was perfect. If you want more flavor just up the Kool-Aid. The Waring ProTM Professional Cotton Candy Machine guide recommends using 1 scoop Kool-Aid to 5 scoops sugar.
