Watermelon Rice Krispy Treats

Summertime means certain things around here...pool time, going to the beach, fruity cocktails, fresh strawberries, tomatoes from the garden, and watermelon. We love watermelon around here, it's a fruit we all can agree on. A few weeks ago I ran across a different kind of watermelon and just had to try it.


Watermelon rice krispy treats...aren't these the cutest ever??!! I found this idea at the Glorious Treats food blog and knew I had to make it. You make two separate batches and tint one red/pink and one green (please see her blog post for exact measurements). Using a round cake pan, make one ring of green for the rind.


Then press the batch of pink rice krispies into the middle of the ring to create the watermelon look.


I used mini chocolate chips for the seeds (only because I couldn't find the chocolate covered sunflower seeds she suggests using...where do you find those things???).


I lined them all up on a cookie sheet to take with me to a summer party. They were a big hit!


Please go to the Glorious Treats blog for the official recipe: Watermelon Krispy Treats.
But be prepared...She has so many great baking ideas, you might end up getting lost in her blog for a while. Thanks for stopping by today!
