Watermelon Shaped Rice Krispies Treats

I saw a picture of these treats on Pinterest and thought they were too adorable not to make. With Fourth of July coming up these would be a great treat to bring to your holiday picnic or BBQ. I let my boyfriend take the batch we made to his co workers because really who doesn't like rice krispies!

Final Product, very yummy!


For the Rind:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 of a package of Big Marshmallows (about 15)
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 2 drops green food coloring
For the Middle:
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2/3 of a package of Big Marshmallows (about 30)
  • 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 2 drops pink food coloring


1) Spray a cake pan with cooking spray. You will start by making the rind first.
2) On the stove top, place the butter and marshmallows for the rind and let them melt. Remember to stir the ingredients so that they don't stick to your pot. Once the ingredients have melted put in your green food coloring and stir.
3) Take your pot of the stove and mix in your cereal. Stir the ingredients together until they are well combined.
4) Next place the green cereal mixture into your cake pan and shape it into the rind of the watermelon, leaving the middle of your cake pan empty.
5) Now we are going to repeat the above steps for the meat of the watermelon.
6)  Once you have melted and combined your ingredients for the middle of the watermelon. Place the mixture into the middle of your pan with the rind and form the shape.
7) After the rice krispie treat cools for a few minutes, you can place small chocolate chips in the meat of the watermelon to look like seeds.

This is how the rind should look before you add the middle.
