These Firecracker Floats have real popping action that kinda feels like fireworks in your mouth by using Pop Rocks. Mix & match the flavors – they’re yummy!
The 4th of July is almost here, and with that comes fireworks. Lots & lots of fireworks. I love fireworks – I think most of us do. They’re just so pretty!
Why not make some fireworks of your own – but edible ones? Don’t worry, I’m not suggesting we light a fuse in your mouth, because that might be just a tad on the dangerous side, and I don’t offer liability insurance. But – these Firecracker Floats sure will make you feel like you have a mini fireworks display going on your tastebuds with the addition of Pop Rocks.
This is one that the kids are going to L-O-V-E. That is, of course, as long as the adults don’t hog them all! 😉
They really couldn’t be simpler either. You only need 3 ingredients!
Here’s what you need:
I’ve used vanilla ice cream here but feel free to use your imagination to come up with a whole bunch of different flavors. You can mix and match whatever flavor of ice cream (or frozen yogurt or sherbet) with any flavor of Pop Rocks – the flavor possibilities are endless!
Put a scoop of ice cream in a tall glass, followed by 1/3 of a pack of pop rocks. Repeat twice.
Then, pour in your lemon lime soda to the top of the glass.
Pop. Pop. Pop.
- lemon lime soda
- 1 pack of pop rocks per float (strawberry is my favorite)
- 3 scoops of ice cream per float
- Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a tall glass, followed by ⅓ of a pack of pop rocks. Repeat twice. Pour in the lemon lime soda to the top.
- Serve immediately.
