It's Watermelon Week at Red Couch Recipes. I whipped these Watermelon Rice Krispies up in no time! This is a fun project you could make with your children or grandchildren. These need to be seeded watermelon slices; the slices look incomplete without the mini chocolate chips for seeds.
Recipe and Instructions for Watermelon Slices:
3 tablespoons butter
1 large (10 ounce) bag of marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Red and Green food coloring
Mini Chocolate Chips
On medium heat, melt better in large stock pot or large sauce pan. Add marshmallows and heat until melted. Add Rice Krispues cereal and stir to coat cereal completely. Divide Rice Krispies into two portions for coloring. Color about 3/4's of mixture with red food coloirng. Color the remaining 1/4 with green food coloring. Put red mixture into greased pyrex baking pan and smooth and flatten. Cut out red mixture, with a cookie cutter or the top of a glass, round circles of the red mixture; then cut circles in half. Roll green mixture into rind shapes and attach green rind to red watermelon. You might need to flatten the slices with a rolling pin. Adorn with mini chocolate chips by pressing chips into the watermelon slices and insert stick. Sorry, I did not take pictures of the process because I had to work quickly because the Rice Krispy mixture can harden quickly!
