Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats are not just tasty, but adorable with the realistic red and green colors, so easy to make in round baking pans, and the “seeds” are yummy mini chocolate chips!
For the Rind
- 1 1/2 Tbsp salted butter
- 2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
- Green food coloring
- 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- For the Center
- 2 Tbsp salted butter
- 3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
- Pink or red food coloring
- 3 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 2 tsp mini chocolate chips
Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.
For the rind portion, melt 1 1/2 Tbsp butter in a medium non-stick saucepan over medium-low heat.
Add in 2 1/2 cups marshmallows and green food coloring and cook and stir just until marshmallows have melted.
For the center portion, melt 1 1/2 Tbsp butter in a medium non-stick saucepan over medium-low heat.
Add in 2 1/2 cups marshmallows and red food coloring and cook and stir just until marshmallows have melted.
Remove from heat and mix in 2 cups Rice Krispies, stir until evenly coat.
Pour into prepared baking dish and let cool just slightly (so it’s not too hot to the touch), spray hands with non-stick cooking spray and spread and press mixture around outer edge to create a rind that is no more than 1-inch thick.
Remove red colored mixture from heat and stir in 3 cups Rice Krispies.
Pour into center of cake pan and once cool enough to handle spray hands with non-stick cooking spray and spread into an even layer.
Let cool then sprinkle and press chocolate chips randomly over pink portion.
Cut into 6 – 8 wedges.
Put one popsicle stick in each wedge.
Enjoy! You can store these treats for later in an airtight container.
