Thirsty Thursday Firecracker Float

Yes, I realize it’s really Wednesday but since Independence Day is tomorrow (Thursday) I thought you might want to make this delicious Firecracker Float for your 4th festivities; thus the early posting of our Thirsty Thursday Firecracker Float.

This float is refreshing. Everyone will love this cool, ice cream treat. Add in the pop rocks for an exciting explosion and kids and adults alike will all be asking for seconds!

The recipe for this easy-to-assemble delicacy originated on the Taste of Home website. Here is our Thirsty Thursday feature, just for you:

Firecracker Float


3 scoops vanilla ice cream (or whatever flavor excites you)

1 envelope Pop Rocks candy, flavor of your choice

1 cup chilled lemon-lime soda


Place a scoop of ice cream in a tall glass; sprinkle with one-third of the candy. Repeat layers twice. Top with soda. Serve immediately.

Yield: 1 serving

All of us at ToySplash wish you and your family a very safe and happy 4th of July!!
