Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

I got this fabulous idea from Dine and Dish for Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats. Thanks for sharing Kristen!

Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

I had to make a minor alteration because I couldn’t find any watermelon flavored Kool-Aid that wasn’t CLEAR!   The time you want a “bright red, sure to stain your clothes drink mix”, you can’t find one!  So I used strawberry instead. since she calls for strawberry marshmallows.  I used a 9″ circle spring form cake pan which made it super easy to slice and store.

I followed her directions and Wah-Lah!   I used mini-chocolate chips and they were PERFECT watermelon seeds!  I cut a slice and stuck it on a popsicle stick and as you can see it was a sure hit!

We did live in Minnesota for 3.5 years…so put it on a stick and it’s So. Much. Better. ;-)

Watermelon Rice Krispie Treats

Ingredients Needed:

  • 8 cups of rice krispie cereal
  • 2 bags of large marshmallows
  • 1 packet of lime kool-aid drink mix
  • 1 packet of strawberry kool-aid drink mix
  • 1/2 cup of butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 9 inch spring form pan
  • mini chocolate chips (1/8 cup roughly)
  • popsicle sticks


  • Start out with two large to medium pots. In each, melt 1/4 cup butter and bag of marshmallows over medium to high heat stirring constantly. {Don't let this burn!}
  • Once the marshmallows are melted and smooth, add 1 packet of kool-aid drink mix to each of the pots. One for lime and one for strawberry.
  • Turn off heat once drink mix is fully incorporated.
  • Add 4 cups of Krispie cereal into each pot and stir until fully coated.
  • Grease spring form pan well with butter.
  • Pack in the green mixture around the edges of the pan forming the "rind" of the watermelon
  • Fill the center with the red cereal mixture and press flat.
  • Let cool.
  • Add mini chocolate chips to the top as "seeds"
  • Cut into wedges and insert a popsicle stick!
  • Enjoy!
