Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

I've been making these cuties for a few years now. I've made them for different occasions and just to put in the boys lunch boxes for a treat. I think rice krispie treats are so much more cuter when you 'dress' them up (maybe I'm just a weirdo lol). It's really easy and pretty quick to make them look like watermelon slices.

Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats
  •  6 tbls butter (divided in 2)
  •  6 cups mini marshmallows (divided in 2)
  •  8 cups rice krispies (divided in 2)
  •  red & green food coloring
  •  Chocolate chips (seeds)
* If you like you could use flavored kool-Aid in the mixtures to add flavor. I did try it once but prefer the regular rice krispie flavor : )*

1. Melt 3 tbls of butter in a medium/large saucepan over medium heat. Add 3 cups of marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat & add in green food coloring until you get your desired color. Stir in Rice Krispies until completely coated. 

2. Scoop the green rice krispies into a *greased* 9 inch round cake pan. Press it around the outer edges of the cake pan to form a ring. (You may need to butter your hands if it's to sticky)

3. Repeat step 1 but with red food coloring. 

4. Scoop the red krispie mixture into the center of the cake pan. Press it so that it's level with the green ring.

5. Let it cool completely and then add the chocolate chips for seeds.



















Enjoy your oh so cute rice krispies : )

  10. WOW! This is super cute Nicole! I might add this to the party food for Cas' first birthday party. Doing a '100 Acre Woods Picnic' and this would be less messy than REAL watermelon. LOL
