We were invited to a couple of 4th of July parties this year and needed a treat to bring. So I came up with the Rice Krispie Treat Watermelon. My kids love faux-foods, and this one we came up with on our own.
Strawberry flavored marshmallow Rice Krispie treats with dried blueberry "seeds" covered with fondant.
Step 1: Ingredients
I used the standard Rice Krispie Ceral Treat recipe. I had to double it to make mini watermelon. So buy 1 large box of cereal and 2 bags of strawberry marshmallows.
You still need to make in two separate batches to make it easier to handle.
3 Tablespoons of butter
6 Cups of Rice Krispie Treat Cereal
1 10 oz. bag of Kraft Jet-Puffed Strawberry Marshmallows
1/4 Cup of dried blueberries
8 oz of mini marshmallows (half a bag)
1 pound of powdered sugar
shortening (for your hands)
