Bake Club Pop Rocks

Bake Club Pop Rocks


1 cup sugar

¼ cup light corn syrup OR honey

¼ cup water


1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

1 tablespoon citric acid

1 ½ teaspoons kool aid mix, country time lemonade, jello powder pack


OR


1 ½ teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon + 1 ½ teaspoons (about 2 packs)  emergen-c (it has citric acid and flavor already in it!!)


(Flavored extracts and food colorings also welcome!)


Grease a baking sheet and set aside.


In a medium, heavy bottomed saucepan, heat sugar, corn syrup and water to 300F- just beyond hard ball state, go with me on video- I’ll explain it all- it you don’t have a thermometer, don’t worry, neither do I!


Off heat, stir in baking soda, citric acid and a flavorful, powdered drink mix.


Pour onto prepped baking sheet and let the slab of hot sugar syrup cool completely. 


Break up, transfer to a ziploc bag and using a rolling pin or bottom of a pan crush into smaller pieces. 


This is my favorite snack for fireworks- it’s makes for the most epic surround sound moment!
