Faux Melon Marshmallow Sweets

These Watermelon Krispie Treats Were Made for the Summer

— June 26, 2012 — Special
If your tried and true marshmallow square recipe has got you yawning, why not liven things up with these fun and fabulous Watermelon Krispie Treats? Crafted by the baking blogger Glory from the aptly titled blog ‘Glorious Treats,’ this funky take on the bake sale favorite is the perfect sweet side for any summer gathering. Despite their rather convincing imitation of a melon, these tasty treats boast the same great taste as the original in a more fun-to-eat format.

Fleshed out with step-by-step photos, Glory guides you through the process of creating these stellar sweets. With a touch of food coloring and a few chocolate-covered sunflower seeds, these tasty crisp treats look every bit like a real watermelon. Serve wedges of your creation on skewers for convenient, mess-free eating and you’ll be the toast of the party.

Fun, playful and delicious, these Watermelon Krispie Treats were made for cookout season.
