Pashmak (Persian: پشمک) is a form of Persian candy floss or cotton candy, made from sesame and sugar. The word Pashmak in Persian is composed of پشم pashm [wool] + ـَک ak [resemblance suffix] meaning "wool-like", as the confectionery resembles sheep's wool.
Pashmak is served on its own or as an accompaniment to fruits, cakes, ice creams, puddings and desserts.
A Turkish sweet called pişmaniye bears some resemblance to Pashmak.
