Cocoa Beans are a primary color dye and food ingredient. Cocoa beans come from the Cocoa Pods which are found naturally in Jungle Biomes. Placing a cocoa bean on the side of jungle wood will plant a new cocoa pod. (The log does not need to be attached to a tree).

Like all other dyes, cocoa beans can be:

  • Applied to sheep to dye their wool, which can then be sheared for 1–3 blocks of brown wool.
  • Applied to tamed wolves to dye their collars.
  • Combined with gunpowder to make a firework star.
  • Combined with a Firework Star to create a “fade to color” effect.
  • Used to dye leather armor.
  • Used to dye or stain glass or hardened clay.
  • Used to add patterns to banners.
  • Used to make cookies.
