Red, White and Blue Shooting Stars / #SundaySupper

If you are still thinking about making some simple treats for your 4th of July celebration, these Red, White and Blue Shooting Stars are your answer! They are easy to put together and they take very little time! Plus they have a little "pop" to them. Pop rocks! Just a little something to put some sizzle in your celebration!

Red, White and Blue Shooting Stars
(printable recipes)

Red, White, Blue Candy Melts
Star Shaped Lollipop Mold
Pop Rocks
Candy Sticks
Red,White and Blue Sprinkles 

Melt the candy melts on the stove. Place each color in its own double boiler, and on low heat, stir the candy as it melts.
Place pop rocks into the stars in the mold. I made some without the pop rocks too.
Fill each mold with the candy melts, covering the pop rocks. Do this with all three of the colors. Use a toothpick to make sure that the points of the stars are filled, and that there are no air bubbles. Let molds completely dry. Refrigerate for quicker set up time.
Once the molds have completely set, remove the lollipops from the mold. Drizzle all three colors over the lollipops. Add the sprinkles to the lollipops while the drizzle is still wet.
Display the lollipops, or wrap in plastic bags as take-home treats.
Have a Happy 4th of July!
