New Year's Pop Rocks Rims

Have you noticed I'm into rims lately?  Mostly because they're so quick and so easy and kids flip for them.  We used Martinelli's with watermelon pop rocks today.  I don't personally care for the carbonated drink WITH the carbonated candy, but the kids are all about it. Next time I'll pair mine with a non-carbonated punch instead.  I like to do my rims deep so the kids get more pop-rockety-goodness, but you can do sophisticated super thin rims if you like.  These can be adapted for all holidays and occasions just by varying the color scheme.

This has been a great year for my family and I'm so pleased to have been able to share some pieces of our lives with you.  Best wishes for a wonderful 2012 to you all!

PS- In case you're wondering if that's a super huge bag of poprocks...  The wine glass is actually super small.  It's the perfect size for our 4 year old who gets to use it at Christmas and New Years so he can feel all sophisticated-like.  I bought it at World Market.

Pop Rocks Rims
-corn syrup
-pop rocks (any flavor)
-Martinellis, soda, or punch of your choice

Pour a few tablespoons of corn syrup in a small dish.  You want it to be at least as deep as you want your candy rim to be.  Pour your pop rocks in another small dish.

Dip the rim of your glass straight down into the corn syrup to desired deepness.

Pull glass straight up out of the corn syrup and dip straight down into the bowl of pop rocks. Don't grind it on the bottom of the bowl, but feel free to rotate it gently until all the corn syrup is covered in pop rocks.

Carefully fill glass with Martinelli's or other punch or soda. Enjoy ringing in the New Year!
