Not all watermelon treats have to actually be made from watermelon, and these watermelon rice krispie treats from Glorious Treats are the perfect example! The recipe is super simple to make and will have you ready to celebrate National Watermelon Day August 3rd. These may not cool you down like a real slice of watermelon but they are just as delicious. Here is what you will need to make these tasty treats:

Ingredients
  • 9 cups of rice krispie cereal
  • 9 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • red and green food coloring
  • mini chocolate chips
  • 2 - 8 inch cake pans sprayed with non-stick spray

Directions
  1. To make the rind melt 4 cups of mini marshmallows and 3 tablespoons of butter until very puffy and then add the green food coloring.
  2. While still warm, pour the green mixture over 4 cups of rice krispie cereal and stir.
  3. Before it cools, quickly divide the mixture between the two prepared cake pans. Press the rind along the sides of the pans, creating a ring about 1.5 inches tall and 1-1.5 inches wide/thick. 
  4. To make the center take the rest of the mini marshmallows, butter, rice krispies and the red food coloring and repeat the steps you used to make the green rind.
  5. Once combined, pour the red mixture into the center of the pans and press down to create a smooth surface.
  6. To create your seeds take the mini chocolate chips and press them into your rice krispie treats.
  7. You are now ready to slice your treats into watermelon wedges and serve!

What is your favorite watermelon treat to make? Happy National Watermelon Day tomorrow!!
