These exploding cupcakes are a real blast! Do you see what I did there? ;) They are filled with Pop Rocks candy so they literally explode in your mouth when you bite into them.
I've provided my favorite vanilla cupcake and Swiss meringue buttercream recipe below, but you can substitute your own recipe (or a box mix!) if you’d like. The only really important part is that you add the Pop Rocks! If you want to decorate your cupcakes with big swirls of frosting, like those pictured, I do recommend making homemade frosting—canned frosting just won't have the same effect.
