These are tasty as well as super fun to eat!  When you first bite into them they "explode" in your mouth, and the sensation stays the whole time you are eating the candy.  The secret?  Pop rocks!

I made these peppermint flavored, but they could be any flavor you want.

Just make the filling by heating 3/4 cup of heavy whipping cream on the stove until just boiling.  Pour this over 10oz of chocolate chips in a large bowl.  Mix this until it forms a smooth mixture.  Add peppermint flavoring, or whatever flavor you would like.

Fill the candy molds, and then while the chocolate is still soft top with pop rocks.  (I used peppermint flavored pop rocks.)

***You could also roll these by hand and then roll them into pop rocks if you don't have candy molds.

I've got some tips on filling candy molds on my blog: http://papercookies.blogspot.com/2011/12/creamy-caramel-filled-chocolates.html

AWESOME! I had some English chocolate with pop rocks recently and it was genius. Can't wait to try these--thanks for the recipe!

Haha! Pop Rocks in chocolate? How did you come up with that? Sounds kind of awesome, though!

Excuse me, Mister Pete, have the Cubans a different beat?

I saw the idea somewhere, but I don't remember where.  I will say that if you plan on transporting these to make the poprocks inside... Otherwise they.stick to the paper.

yum!  Who doesn't love truffles and pop rocks?   But to combine them?  brilliant!

I haven't had Pop Rocks in years! I'm going to have to try this recipe. It sounds delicious! Thanks so much for sharing it!

Have you made any with other flavors besides peppermint?

I've made lots of flavors.  Any filling recipe you want to follow works with these really.  Another thing I've been doing more recently is to just mix the pop rocks into chocolate and pour that into the molds.  (I've been using good quality chocolate now, so that it will still be tasty.)  Doing it that way makes it so that when you are eating the chocolate it doesn't really pop, but right towards the end of the chewing it all starts to pop and it keeps crackling after the chocolate is gone.
