Poppin' Patriotic Marshmallow Pops

P O P !

Okay, I know Pop Rocks are not artisan or gourmet. But when I was thinking about what I’d like to eat on the 4th, I started thinking about fireworks. And what sweet just so happens to taste like fireworks? Pop Rocks!

I found about a zillion recipes that use Pop Rocks to add a kick to desserts, and the results look delicious and adorable. These Poppin’ Patriotic Marshmallow Pops are particularly cute, but I think you can add them to just about anything!

Apparently hot dogs are the most popular 4th of July food. But do you know the proper way to eat one? Appear urbane and civilized in front of your friends with the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council’s Guide to Hot Dog Etiquette! Also, puzzle over the mere existence of such an organization.
