Hi Valerie;
It might not be a fungus, but a slime-mold. Although its difficult without
a picture, it sounds like a slime mold to me. The "cocoons" would be the
spore capsules (maybe) and as it dried out, it seems to have sporulated.
Harmless, amd some of them even make good "pets"! 
Maybe someone else in the group has aan idea?
