Easy Cotton Candy Ice Cream Shots Recipe

Nothing says “I have a sweet tooth” quite like these cotton candy ice cream shots! And you can make them with or without alcohol.

It’s been quite a while since my last ice cream shot recipe on the blog. How were you liking those Creme de Menthe Ice Cream Shots?

So I’ve decided to pick it back up again with a very sweet (and summery) version. Meet the Cotton Candy Ice Cream Shots topped with cotton candy (naturally).

Now before you judge me too hard for this one, let’s keep in mind that these are mini sized. So they’re basically the equivalent of having a super small cup of cotton candy ice cream.

I think we can all agree you’ve hit up the ice cream stand for a lot more than that before, no?

And you can make them with or without the alcohol…

How to Make Cotton Candy Ice Cream Shots

Now all you have to do is simply blend of all of the ingredients together and serve immediately!

Hence, you should make/prep your cotton candy straw sticks in advance, especially if you’re making your own like I did.

(I used this cotton candy machine that also makes cotton candy from hard candies!) You can buy your own pre-made cotton candy. But having a machine around means you can also make your own Spiked Cotton Candy too!
