Firecracker Sundaes

This is a fun, fizzy treat to make on a hot summer’s day or a 4th of July picnic. My kids and I saw this in the most recent Taste of Home magazine and just had to try it. The problem was it takes Pop Rocks candy and I had the darndest time finding them. Finally I found some (at JoAnn Fabrics of all places!) and we had to make these that very night. Unlike some other desserts where my husband and I end up cleaning up the kids leftovers, not a drop was left when my crew was done with them. To make them extra special, serve in tall parfait glasses or something similar.

Little helpers like to get in on the action.

This recipe can’t be much easier. All you need is ice cream or sherbert (we used Turkey Hill Orange & Cream), Pop Rocks candy, and some kind of carbonated beverage. Layer ice cream on the bottom, drop some Pop Rocks on it, and then pour soda over top. Watch it bubble and fizz!

 
 
Fun fizz.

Of course I had to make one for myself. I would describe it as a little party going on in your mouth. The fruity  tasting ice cream made it especially good.

Heidi says Yum!

We have made these a couple of times now and they have been devoured every time. Now Mama needs to go buy some more Pop Rocks!

  1. This is such a cool idea and you can find pop rocks at cracker barrels store at Rockvale Outlets if you do this again. They have a lot of the older candies. My kids can’t wait to try this fun treat, think I’ll save it for the 4th!!
