Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats
This is the second batch of Rice Krispie Treats in two weeks. I’ll go through phases and make three or four batches of cookies, pie or brownies back to back. Expect only one more Rice Krispie Treat recipe.

These Watermelon Rice Krispie treats are perfect for one last summer picnic! The last summer bank holiday in the UK is on Monday and labor day in the US is also coming soon.

Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

I bought one of those family sized boxes of Rice Krispies and I don’t really like having them for breakfast so I figured I could get at least three different desserts out of the box.
 
I used dark chocolate chips mixed in with the cereal to represent the watermelon seeds and white candy melts dyed a very light shade of green to represent the skin (I added a very small drop of pink food gel too).
Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats
Unlike the Red Velvet Rice Krispie Treats these pack a lot more flavor thanks to a packet of watermelon Jell-o. Any flavor powdered gelatin would work well here if you can’t find watermelon flavor.
Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats
Lemon with a white chocolate drizzle, raspberry or orange with dark chocolate would all be fun and tasty.

I hope everyone has had a lovely summer! Anyone get in any good picnics this year?

Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

Yield: 10 squares

Ingredients

6 cups Rice Krispie cereal

3 cups mini marshmallows

3 tbs unsalted butter

1 packet watermelon Jell-o

1 cup chocolate chips (use as many as to your liking)

half a bag white candy melts or white chocolate

green and pink gel food coloring (optional)

Instructions

  1. Lightly grease a square or rectangle baking tin. In a large saucepan melt the butter over a medium low heat.
  2. Stir in the powdered Jell-o and pink gel color (if using).
  3. Stir in the mini marshmallows. As soon as they melt take the pan off the heat and stir in the cereal.
  4. Gently fold in some of the chocolate chips. Don't stir as they will quickly melt.
  5. Scoop the cereal into your baking tin and flatten the top with a piece of parchment paper. Press any remaining chocolate chips onto the top as well.
  6. Melt the candy melts or white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, at 30 second intervals. Once completely melted stir in a tiny drop of green food coloring. Using a spoon or squeezy bottle drizzle over top the cereal.
  7. Once cool and the chocolate has set cut into squares.
