  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 16 ounces miniature marshmallows, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups rice krispy cereal
  • red food coloring
  • green food coloring
  • chocolate chips


  • Line 2 round cake pans with parchment paper.
  • In a saucepan, melt the butter. Add miniature marshmallows, leaving out 1 cup. Stir until marshmallows are melted. Add vanilla and mix well.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the melted marshmallow mix and rice krispy cereal. Stir in the last cup of marshmallows and mix well.
  • Divide the krispy mixtures into 2 separate mixing bowls. Tint one with green food coloring and the other with red food coloring.
  • Starting with the green rice krispy mixture, layer it around the outside of the cake pan from earlier. This will act as the rind of the watermelon.
  • Fill in the center with the red rice krispy mixture. Press lightly into the pan to form the watermelon together.
  • Gently press chocolate chips into the the red rice krispy mixture. These will act as your watermelon seeds.
  • Repeat steps 5-7 using your other cake pan from earlier. Let these sit for about an hour to fully set. Enjoy!
