Watermelon Rice Krispies

How cute are these!  I know right!  I am on vacation right now visiting a lot of family and got invited to a bbq at my Aunt’s house (well more like I invited myself over, but hey you can do that with family when you are in town).  I wanted to bring something yummy, but simple and found these on www.glourioustreats.com.

My 7yr old watched me make them and kept begging to eat one.  I was mean and told him he had to wait until after dinner.  He ran up to me after he ate all his food and asked me to get him one, but when I went to grab them off the plate they were all gone! Poor kid!!!

Don’t worry, he was plenty happy after he was offered a chocolate dipped ice cream bar instead.

Anyway, these are super fun and cute and really simple to make.

Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

1 box of Rice Krispies Cereal
6 Tb butter
1 large bag of mini marshmallows
1 bag of mini chocolate chips (she used chocolate covered sunflowers, but I was going for easy)
2 round cake pans

Green Part:

4 Cups rice krispie cereal
4 cups mini marshmellows
3 TB butter
green food coloring

1.  Measure out rice krispies in a large bowl and set aside.
2.  Put butter and marshmallows in a microwavable bowl.
3.  Microwave for 2 minutes or until big and puffy.
4.  Add food coloring and stir.
5.  Quickly poor over rice crispy cereal and mix well.
6.  Put 1/2  in each round cake pan and push around the outer edges.  Make sure to work quickly!

Red Part:

5 Cups rice krispie cereal
5 cups mini marshmellows
3 TB butter
Red food coloring

***Repeat steps above and pour in the center of cake pans and make the center.  Let them cool for a bit, then cut them into triangles like you would cut a pie and and add a few chocolate chips to each piece.

Yummy!  If you have more round cake pans I recommend making extras as they are grabbed up quick!

    Preparing the meal together with your spouse can also be fun.

    As soon as the fried chicken is already cooked, remove
    them from the skillet and arrange them in a pan, then cover with paper towels
    to keep them warm. In a casserole, bring to boil
    2 cup of water with chicken feet, put fire into low and simmer 10 minute.
