At our end of the year baseball party, my favorite baseball mom, Melissa Duzan, brought these incredible cookies baked with Pop Rocks. I don't know who loved them more, the adults or the kids. I begged Melissa for the recipe so I could make them for myself my kids. She happily's her recipe - enjoy!
