Cotton Candy Cooler

I am guessing I am not the only parent to have this experience. You take your kid(s) to the fair (carnival, beach, amusement park, etc.), you are wandering around taking in the sights and having fun - then WHAM! They see it. The sickeningly sweet brightly colored spun sugar stuffed into bags dangling from snack booths everywhere you look.

"Can I have some cotton candy? PUH-leeeeeeeease."

You promise "on the way home" and hope they forget. But as you head for the exit, the kid that can't remember to wash his hands after he goes to the bathroom remembers you said he could have cotton candy. You try to pick the smallest bag they have ($5 plus tax!!!) but by the time you get home you have a sticky kid and a half a bag of cotton candy left. The kid is done with it, if you leave it sitting around it will harden and shrink (or you will be tempted to eat it. You can't throw it out because you spent good money on it. So, what do you do with it?

That was me on Wednesday after a trip to the County Fair. But, I kid you not, that night I found a pin for a what I have dubbed Cotton Candy Cooler. SCORE!
