Step 1: Mix ice cream base
Pour two cups heavy cream into a large mixing bowl. Mix on high speed for five minutes until stiff peaks form. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and cotton candy syrup. Add in pink food dye and mix well. Pour ice cream base into a 9-inch by 4-inch pan or glass dish. Cover and freeze for at least eight hours or overnight.
Step 2: Add cotton candy and serve
Remove container from freezer. Allow ice cream to thaw and soften, about five to 10 minutes. Scoop out cotton candy ice cream, and place in cones or bowls. Add fresh cotton candy on top for a pop of color, if desired. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
