Looking for a way to add some spark to your Fourth of July festivities? This Firecracker Popcorn has just the right amount of sweet, salty and fizz to it! It’s a really fun — and easy — snack to serve!
1 bag Pop Secret Homestyle microwave popcorn
1 cup white candy melts
1 package Strawberry Pop Rocks candy
Prepare the popcorn according to package directions. Spread onto a cookie sheet and allow to cool.
Meanwhile, melt the candy melts and drizzle onto the popcorn.
Sprinkle Strawberry Pop Rocks onto the popcorn.
**If you want some EXTRA sizzle, use Blue Pop Rocks, too!**
Add sprinkles and allow to harden completely.
Serve at your patriotic festivities! The Pop Rocks add an interesting texture to the popcorn, and the sweetness of the candy melts is a nice contrast to the buttery flavor of the popcorn. Super fun!

Would it be fine if I made this recipe a day in advance or would the popcorn go bad?
Hi Chelsea! You can definitely make this early and store it in an air-tight container.
I have just made this and had a hard time melting the candy melt and drizzling. It was so hot and a little clumpy. I went ahead and mixed all of the popcorn and candy melt together and it turned out alright. It is very tasty.
That sounds like a great solution. Sorry you had trouble, Kristyn!
What a fun idea to use pop rocks with popcorn! Sounds delicious!
I have plain popcorn. How can I make that work? Thanks!
