Everyone will love the Pop Rocks, the candy that pops and crackles in your mouth like a firework, in this yummy treat! This recipe is easy enough for the novice of crafter and your kiddos can even help with the chocolate drizzling and sprinkles. Happy 4th of July!


1 Bag Microwavable Popcorn

1/3 Cup Red Chocolate Candy Melts

1/3 Cup Blue Chocolate Candy Melts

2 Tablespoons Red, White & Blue Sprinkles

1 Bag Red or Blue Pop Rocks

Instructions: Pop popcorn and spread out on a piece of wax paper, removing all unpopped popcorn kernels. Melt 1/3 cup blue chocolate candy melts according to package, taking care not to over melt. I recommend microwaving in 30 second intervals and mix in between until fully melted. Drizzle the blue chocolate over the popcorn using a fork. Melt 1/3 cup red chocolate candy melts according to package and drizzle over the popcorn. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons sprinkles and Pop Rocks over the chocolate. Allow chocolate to harden and then enjoy!
