This cocoa is FUN to make and involves the person drinking it to finalize the sweet treat. This recipe would be great for any party and great for kids parties! 


6 cups of 2% milk

6 tbl of Dutch cocoa (yes, you can use other cocoa- but Dutch has a smoother flavor)

1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise

6 “handfuls” of cotton candy (handful= a piece as large as an adult fist)

Optional whipped cream and cinnamon for garnishing


Set aside one cup of the milk and place the remaining 5 cups in a saucepan. Place the split vanilla bean in the saucepan and simmer for 20 minutes until hot. In the meantime, heat the cup of reserved milk in the microwave for a minute until hot and stir in the 6 tbl of cocoa, breaking up the lumps with a fork and stirring.

Garnish with whipped cream and
