If you’re planning a last minute Fourth of July party, or even want to have some treats for the family to celebrate the holiday, these Firecracker Cookies with Pop Rocks are the perfect easy treats to bring festive decor to your table! 

To make Firecracker Cookies, you’ll need Sugar Cookie dough.  I used the bag kind…Betty Crocker I think – it works just fine!  I also used pre made cookie icing for the first time, and let me tell you…it’s the way to go!  There is a tip on it, making it super easy to get pretty frosting!  I love easy!  After cutting the cookies out with a star cookie cutter, I poked a lollipop stick into each cookie and baked according to the package directions.




To decorate each cookie, I used blue food coloring with sugar, and then topped it all off with red Pop Rocks.   You could even add a pretty ribbon on each stick for more flare!
