Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Patriotic Pops!

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.


If you are looking for a super easy and fun treat for the kids on 4th of July…this is it! We made these Firecracker Pops using 3 marshmallows, 1 red fruit roll up, 1 blue fruit roll up, white sprinkles, and 1 yellow Starburst.

We put our marshmallows on a lollipop stick. Poke the stick out on the top just a bit. We like Kroger brand fruit roll ups because they sparkle and you save money as a added bonus! We pulled out our red fruit roll up just enough to wrap around the marshmallow. Just eye ball it. Cut that in half and wrap around the edges first. It will stick together by pressing it. Do that with another strip of red for the 2 other stripes in the middle. Leave a space on the top open for the blue fruit roll up. Pull out the blue roll up and cut off enough to wrap around. You don’t need to cut that one.

Take a yellow Starburst and microwave it for about 8 seconds. Press it into a circle and snip off the edges to make a star. Press it into the top of the stick. We used white sprinkles for stars on the blue fruit roll up, but stores have a million different star sprinkles out there to use for that. If you use sprinkles…just press them onto the roll up and it will stick.

Here are my 2 little soldiers and their patriotic pops!
