I can’t believe it’s almost July! Guys?! This summer is flying by so fast! We made these fun blueberry treats to celebrate July and all the red, white and blue spirit.If June’s flown by as fast for you as it has us, you have to try this recipe. It’s super fun, easy and so delicious. My kids LOVE them! Might I add, everyone will have a popping party in their mouth when they take that first bite!Don’t let their small appearance deceive you. This 4th of July treat will bring the fireworks to your mouth. They are a perfect treat for you to make for your freedom celebration or fireworks snack. They can be ready in under 30 minutes.The bottom red blueberry is my favorite. It’s where the crackling pop surprise is. 😉 Can you guess what makes these sweet treats crackle and pop?POP ROCKS! No joke. Do you remember those little grains of colorful sugary sweetness that popped and fizzled in your mouth the second they hit your tongue? I hadn’t had them since I was a kid. When I got this idea for this blueberry Independence Day treat I had to give Pop Rocks another try. Needless to say, they brought back so many memories. After we made a batch of these blueberry crackle pops, I tried one. It was a party in my mouth! Seriously! You will be the coolest people at the party because you’ll bring the party!! Haha.These little bites of goodness are really easy to make so don’t miss out. Go get yourself some red Pop Rocks, blueberries and whip up a batch in 30 minutes!All you need are 4 ingredients! (Plus the toothpicks, of course).Red Pop Rocks are actually kind of pink/orange so we decided to mix them with red sugar sprinkles.The steps to making these are pretty simple. Using a toothpick, skewer 3 blueberries (of similar sizes) onto the stick. Dip the bottom two blueberries into the white chocolate. Tap to remove excess.Carefully dip bottom chocolate covered blueberry into the sprinkles Pop Rocks mixture. Set aside to harden. You can let them harden standing straight up or lay them on their side.My girls (2, 4 and 6 years old) loved helping me skewer the blueberries and dip them in the white chocolate. Surprise, surprise… their favorite part was eating the final popping treat. Then again, who wouldn’t!Pretty easy, right? Even the “anti-baker” can make a few of these and everyone will love them. You can serve these little fruit poppers with some Pop Rock candy packs in sight or let them be surprised. I like to see the shock and surprise on my friend’s and family’s faces when they eat their first one. Yep! That’s how I like to roll. Haha.Just plan to keep them in the fridge until you serve them to keep the fruit fresh and the chocolate solid. Have a fun, safe 4th of July!
