I found this awesome recipe for homemade pop rocks, but it calls for citric acid crystals.
I do have theliquid, can I use that? here is the recipe.
Oh fun, please tell us how it works out!
now that is just too cool!! thanks for sharing, I saved the site.
Just because we found a wacky recipe for something, does it mean we have to use it? lol (sarcasm never types well!)
Let me know how that works out for you!
Please, take it with the sense of humor I'm sending. The headline was a riot!
haven't thought of pop rocks in years....thanks for sharing!
thanks lol, but does anyone have an answer to my question??? LMAO!
scientifically speaking according to the recipe, I dont think you could use liquid.
why: recipe.. When you put the candy in your mouth, the sugar dissolves, and the citric acid and baking soda combine,
It sounds as if you need the crystals. maybe they dont melt completely at the temp given. if you add liquid it might react immediately.. which could also be fun!!
darn, where can i get the crystals do you think?
the quickest place to get them in at a liquor store that sells homebrew supplies. THey are like $3.50 a container.
Hubby homebrews or i would have no idea, except from cake supply shops.
amazon sell them, too. and shopbakersnook.com
Might have to try these!
ther eare some home brew kits at my grocery store! I will check there!
Will it be called Citric acid crystals?
ok got the citric acid!
Now just one more question.
In the recipe it calls for " a small about of water and a small amount of corn syrup"
How much should I use? I was thinking a tbsp of both.
I don't know...but I'm glad to have the recipe..thanks I love pop rocks.
where did you get the citric acid????
I got it at a winery, but I heard you can order it from the pharmacy!
I put in about 3 tbsp corn syrup and 1/4 water... we will see how it goes!
I've seen citric acid at our pharmacy too.
I just really wish they wrote out the recipe with the proper measurments!!
*sigh* we will see how it goes
I have purchased citric acid in the spice or Kosher foods aisles in the grocery store. The label says "Citric Acid" and under that "Sour Salt".
ok first batch resulted in a " burning" tounge sensation lol
This time im going to try a regular hard candy recipe with the baking soda and citric acid.
I think thier version of "pop" is actually fizz burn lol
Anyone have any sour candy ideas??? I have all this cirtic acid now lol
