Today is National "Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day". Not necessarily a literal holiday, it's more about not letting setbacks get you down. I think this is very important in the kitchen, and I am a big believer in the fact that baking should be FUN. And what could be more fun than creating homemade Pop Rocks with a little kitchen science?
All you need is a few ingredients and half an hour or so, and you could impress your friends and have a whole lot of fun making homemade Pop Rocks.
Or, you could cry because your homemade fondant for eclairs didn't set up quite right and lament that you're a less than perfect baker.
Your choice. I suggest having fun!
