Can you make chocolate dipped cotton candy balls, without the chocolate dissolving the cotton candy? Perhaps a thickening agent in the cotton candy?

Would it be possible to make chocolate flavored cotton candy instead? Maybe mixing cocoa powder in with the sugar mixture? We made a huge gingerbread house for a door decorating contest. Cotton candy topped the towers and it was incredibly hard to get it to stay because it dissipates the moment it touches moisture. I also love Nancy's idea of nesting chocolates in the cotton candy.

If your aim is to mix cotton candy & chocolate, consider making nests of cotton candy and affixing a small chocolate in the center of each.

Or maybe freezing little balls of cotton candy, and then trying to dunk them in chocolate when they're frozen?
