4th of July Pop Rocks Bark

I am notorious for loving different barks, I made this 4th of July Bark, last year, this Easter Bunny Bark in March, and countless barks around Christmas time. I think they are so yummy, so easy, and so pretty. They don't take much time to make and everyone loves them, really who doesn't like melted chocolate?

This 4th of July Pop Rocks Bark is so fun. It looks patriotic and matches the theme, but when you eat the bark, the pop rocks start to pop, reminiscent of fireworks. The blue package of pop rocks is really blue-green, so I added a few drops of blue food coloring to them, which made them clump. I don't think it really matters though, it is still yummy and now a pretty patriotic blue.

1 lb. of White Melting Chocolate
2 packages of Red Pop Rocks
2 packages of Blue Pop Rocks
Blue Food Coloring, optional

First, if you want to color the blue pop rocks, but them in a paper cup or something you do not mind getting stained, blue. Drop a few drops of food coloring in and stir with a plastic spoon or straw. When it reaches the right color, set aside.

Next, line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper.

Now, place the chocolate in a glass or microwave-safe bowl. Place in the microwave for one minute, remove stir, and do this again in 30-second intervals until the chocolate has melted.

Next, pour the chocolate onto the wax paper. Sprinkle with the pop rocks. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour or freezer for 30 minutes, until the chocolate hardens.

Break into pieces and store in an air-tight container.


Happy Cooking,
