Firecracker Pops

Tonight my girls and I made firecracker pops from rice krispie treats, candy melts and lots of sprinkles.

To keep the stick from slipping, we dipped it in the chocolate before inserting into the treat.

Here my daughter is covering the treat with the candy melts.

We laid them on wax paper and decorated with various sugars, sprinkles, and sparkle gels

I recently found these StarMallows which I thought would be perfect for the spark on top of the firecracker. I suppose you cold cover them in yellow coating or sugar to look more like a spark, but we used them as is. I added them to the top of the pop with a toothpick.

I realized that I didnt have a really cool way to display the pops, so Kara decorated some styrofoam cups.

These easy treats will be a lot of fun for your 4th of July parties.  My girls had a great time decorating them.  

I am sharing my firecracker pops on these wonderful linky parties HERE.
