Finally, finally, finally, we grown-ups have the perfect excuse to eat Pop Rocks — that childhood guilty pleasure from our grade school days — in public. It doesn't hurt that this Pop Rocks love is merged with another childhood fave — Jell-O — to create one of the most deliciously fizzy Jell-O shots you'll ever taste.

For the adults who are still kids at heart, here's how to get the Fourth of July party started.

To make these snazzy little shots even better, I stuck rock candies into the Jell-O shots, which almost look like fireworks popping out of the Jell-O. The best part about these is how easy they are to make. All you need is a little chilling time for the Jell-O. These will be a huge hit at your 4th of July party, but just make sure the kids realize they're boozy.
