New Year’s Eve is one of my kiddos favorite holidays. I mean, when else am I going to let them eat whatever they want, watch TV, stay up until midnight, and then scream a countdown? I’ll tell ya…one night only: New Year’s Eve. We keep our traditions for the night simple, but they’re fun and we’ve created our own little festive family evening out of the holiday. Dinner is appetizers, I leave trays of our favorite treats out, we drink sparkling cider with twelve frozen grapes plopped inside. This year, I was struck with inspiration when I picked up a few packages of our favorite Voortman’s wafer cookies and created these fun New Year’s Eve Edible Popper Cookies. The chocolate dipped wafers are decorated with popping candy for a wild new year’s eve treat that creates little edible fireworks to enjoy at midnight.
Let’s begin with the necessary supplies: popping candy, Voortman’s Chocolate Mint Wafers, and black melting candy.
I start with our favorite seasonal flavor from Voortman’s, chocolate mint.
Then I dunk them in some black melting candy to represent the night sky.
And transfer them to parchment paper.
And while the melted candy is still wet, I sprinkle popping candy over the cookies.
Once the chocolate is set, the cookies are ready to enjoy.
Display them on some fun gold streamers for a fun New Year’s Eve display.
This treat is so quick to make and are such a hit with kiddos. The cookies are crispy and delicious and the popping candy adds a fun surprise. As an added bonus for parents, these are poppers that the kids can eat that make a minimal amount of noise. Kind of. But I much prefer the sounds of excited squeals over actual popper bangs.
