Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

Pop Rock PopsiclesThese pops rock! (I had to go there.)  Much as I love my Pop Rock Rice Krispie treats that actually snap, crackle, and pop, I adore the idea of popping popsicles!

My popsicles are made with fresh strawberries, sweetened with a touch of sugar, and enhanced with a little balsamic vinegar and a splash of lemon juice.  After freezing, they are dipped in magic shell (I make my own) and covered in strawberry Pop Rocks.

You could make my Pop Rock popsicles for your pop (on Father’s Day) or have your own popsplotion in your mouth on July 4th or whenever your want to celebrate with a bang.

Special thanks to Sucre Shop for the popsicle sticks!  They are the bomb!

It can be surprisingly tricky to find strawberry Pop Rocks.  I got mine in the monthly subscription box, My Baker’s Box.   You can also buy them in bulk on Amazon.

Pop Rock Popsicles

Yield: 8 tall popsicles

Pop Rock Popsicles


    Strawberry Popsicles Ingredients
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • Pop Rock Magic Shell Topping Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup (3 3/4 ounces) dark chocolate discs or chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 package strawberry Pop Rocks


    Strawberry Popsicles Ingredients
  1. Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds.
  3. Freeze until hard, about three hours.
  4. Place a parchment-lined cookie sheet in the freezer to chill.
  5. Pop Rock Magic Shell Topping Directions
  6. Microwave chocolate and coconut oil in 20 second increments, stirring after each interval until smooth.
  7. Pour into a tall thin container (like a water glass).
  8. Working quickly, remove popsicles from the mold, dip them in the chocolate, place on the chilled parchment-lined cookie sheet, and sprinkle with Pop Rocks.
  9. Return Pop Rock popsicles to the freezer or serve immediately.


Pop Rocks will begin to pop as soon as they make contact with water. They will not pop very much on the chocolate, but do try to keep your hands dry when working with them to keep them from prematurely popping.
