Guys. I had so much fun coming up with this Shirley Temple Bark! Shirley Temples are a family favorite. Every now and again I’ll buy all of the ingredients and will surprise the kids with Homemade Shirley Temples. Recently I was chatting with a friend about all of the fun bark recipes out there and mentioned how I haven’t seen any cherry versions. As soon as I said it I thought of Shirley Temples and bam! The idea was born. This stuff is so delicious and fun! It has a sweet taste with a bit of zing that kids and adults can both enjoy. It would make a great conversation piece at your next gathering!
Cherry Pop Rocks (I was not able to find actual pop rocks, but found these Angry Bird versions at Toys R Us)
Red Melting Chocolates
Prefer written instructions? Read on:
In a microwave safe bowl, place the chocolate melts in the microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir and then continue to put back in for 30 second bursts until completely melted.
Stir in a half a box of Lime Jello (if you want a stronger lime taste, go ahead and use the whole box)
Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper and pour the chocolate mixture on top, spreading it evenly.
Pour a package of Pop Rocks over the top.
Place some Lemon Heads into a baggie and break them up by hitting them with the back of a spoon. Pour them over the top.
Place in freezer for one hour. Remove, break up and serve.
