Shock Their Taste Buds

When I think of New Years, I think of fireworks; the ball dropping and the amazing display of fireworks! So what would be better than incorporating the idea of fireworks into a festive treat?


Here's what you need:

  1. Your favorite cupcake mix
  2. Your favorite frosting
  3. Pop Rocks ™

Here's what you do:

  1. Make your cupcakes according to the directions given
  2. Wait for your cupcakes to cool and frost them with the frosting. (Hint: Sometimes heating the frosting slightly or adding milk to the frosting will make it spread easier)
  3. Use Pop Rocks ™ as your sprinkles and dust the frosting with the explosive candy

The result: an explosion in your mouth as you bite into the cupcake! What an awesome treat. Happy New Years! Cheers!
