Set Cotton Candy Out As Treats

What is a party without treats? As the host, you’re going to want to make sure you have enough food and sweet treats for your guests. When you put together the spread, don’t forget to include your prepackaged cotton candy. Here, you have a few options. You can either leave the cotton candy in the packaging it comes in from Pok-A-Dots. You can place a mini Dot bag on each guest’s plate setting if you’re hosting dinner. Or you can remove the cotton candy from the wrapping and display it in a pretty bowl or platter for your guests to nibble on throughout the evening.

Incorporate Into A Cocktail

Push the envelope when it comes to your party cocktail. Whether you’re offering a selection of beverages or you’re choosing one signature drink for the night, you’re going to want to consider a cotton candy cocktail. Yes, you read that right. For example, here is a Strawberry Cotton Candy Cocktail recipe taken from Buzzfeed. This recipe creates four cocktails, so multiply the ingredients accordingly depending on the number of guests you’re expecting.

  • Four strawberries (or any berry of your choosing)
  • Two one-ounce bags of cotton candy
  • Two limes
  • ⅓ cup of vodka
  • ⅔ cup of rosé wine
  • ⅔ cup of champagne


Cut off the berry you have chosen. Take your prepackaged cotton candy and separate it into two balls. Put the sliced berries into one ball by cutting into the cotton candy and sticking it in. In a separate pitcher, mix together the vodka and rosé. Squeeze the lime and then add in the champagne. Then, put a cotton candy ball into a martini glass, with sliced lime on the side. Pour the drink mixture you made in the pitcher into the glass in a circular motion. You’ll be mesmerized by how the cotton candy dissolves! Now you have a unique, fun, and delicious cocktail to present to your guests.
