Watermelon Krispie Treats may be the best little treat ever created for summertime fun!
Whatever the age, smiles are guaranteed!
There's nothing better than an ooey-gooey extra-marshmallowy krispie treat, unless you're making them for a summer treat or watermelon party!
For a sweet surprise, replace the vanilla extract with watermelon extract - so fun!
Mini chocolate chips sprinkled on top are perfect, but for a decoration that looks JUST LIKE WATERMELON SEEDS, use chocolate covered sunflower seeds! It's amazing how real they look!
My kiddos get excited for rice krispie treats no matter what their age, and these are so quick and easy to make!
