Pop Rocks Candy Bark

Author Rebecca Lindamood


  • 1 pound dark chocolate
  • 6 packets Pop Rocks

Also needed:

  • a half sheet pan or other cookie sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper


  • Gently melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Pour it over the silpat and use an offset or silicone spatula to gently spread it out. You don't need to get to the edges of the mat. Perfection is not needed.
  • Wait for at least 15 minutes before sprinkling the Pop Rocks over the hardening candy. Test one corner by sprinkling some of the pop rocks over the bark. If it starts fizzling and popping wait another five minutes and test again. When you can sprinkle them on without them fizzling and popping, sprinkle all of it over the top. Let it firm completely before cutting or breaking into pieces. Store loosely wrapped at room temperature.
