Carbonated Strawberries:

  • Fresh strawberries

Temper chocolate in a double broiler. Remove chocolate from heat when it's completely melted and gently roll the strawberries in it to coat all sides. Before the chocolate melts, sprinkle on the Pop Rocks. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens before serving.
