Firecracker Float

(originally made 5/2011)

Miserably hot and humid in NH today.   Jake's home from school so thought I'd make him a treat.   He's had 1 small packet of pop rocks hanging around since Easter and I'd seen this recipe on TOH.    The float melted while I fidgeted with the camera and since Jake was dancing around waiting for a taste, this is my pic-
