My love of Pop Rocks candy goes way back to grade school – 4th grade, I think, when I got busted by the school principal for selling packets on the playground for .10 a pop. I couldn’t help it, I LOVED Pop Rocks so much, I thought they were so magical and brilliant that I spent my babysitting money on bulk bags and sold them to my friends. For about a week, I was the most popular girl on the playground. My mom had to drive me to the store at night to buy more to sell for the next day. Those days are over, but Pop Rocks have always left a special crackle in mi corazon…And wouldn’t you now, they still make and sell them! I knew I had to find a way to use them in a Chubby Girl Delights recipe.
Here is my crafty way to add some POP to your Fourth of July cupcakes! And for the record, that silly myth about Pop Rocks, soda, and exploding tummies have been debunked. Read on to see all about that too!
