I wonder if this tastes like watermelon, or if it just taste like regular rice krispies!
- For the green (rind) outer ring-
- 4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 4 cups mini mashmallows
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- green food coloring
For the red (watermelon) center-
- 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 5 cups mini marshmallows
-3 Tablespoons butter
- red food coloring
Chocolate covered sunflower seeds, or mini chocolate chips
1) Prepare 2- 8" cake pans by greasing with butter or non-stick spray.
Make the green (rind)-
2) Add 4 cups rice krispies to a large bowl, set aside.
Melt 4 cups marshmallows and 3 tablespoons butter in a large bowl in the microwave about 2 minutes, or until very puffy.
3) Carefully remove from microwave, stir, and add in green coloring.
4) Pour green marshmallow mixture over the bowl of rice krispies. Stir mixture together, quickly, using a buttered spatula.
5) Working quickly, divide the mixture between the two prepared cake pans, and press along the sides of the pans, creating a ring about 1.5 inches tall and 1-1.5 inches wide/thick. Rub a bit of butter on your hands as necessary, to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands.
Make the red (watermelon) center-
6) Repeat as above, using the ingredients listed (left).
Press red mixture into the center of the two cake pans, press down and smoothign the top surface with a buttered spatula.
7) I added chocolate covered sunflower seeds, using a tiny bit of melted chocolate to keep each seed in place.
