This red, white and blue popcorn has a secret ingredient that will add a little firecracker to your Independence Day celebrations. 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!

I followed this recipe, except i melted white chocolate chips and added oil-based food colorings instead of using colored melts. The treat was well-received at our Independence Day party 🙂
