Make watermelon rice krispie treats recipe for a summer potluck – or just a snack! The classic Rice Krispie treat recipe is made into watermelon slices for a fun twist on this iconic snack.
I might be a tiny bit prejudice – but how cute are these watermelon Rice Krispies treats? Almost too cute to eat. Almost.
This is a very quick and easy recipe that is adorable for any kind of summer snacking. I think they’d be especially cute at a potluck. Volunteer to bring the watermelon and bring these, too.
Watermelon Rice Krispies treats start off just like the classic recipe – marshmallows, rice cereal, and butter. You can use a microwave to melt the marshmallows or your stove.
Make sure to melt the mixture in a large enough bowl to be able to add the Rice Krispies and coat them later.
You work the recipe in two batches and will end up with one green batch and one pink batch.
A little trick to make your treats not quite so sticky to work with – let the batches sit for 10 minutes after coating the cereal. It’ll be easier to work with.
Use a round baking pan like a pie plate to form the watermelon circle. Press the green mixture on the outside edge of the plate. Then press the pink mixture in the middle of the green ring.
Add a handful of mini chocolate chips to the pink and then press it all down and together.
Refrigerate and slice in to wedges. Your watermelon Rice Krispie treats are ready to be eaten.
