As a kid, puffed rice treats were one of my favorite snacks. (Trademark rules prevent me from referring to them by their more common name, but it includes the words “rice” and “crispies.”)
Even as a watermelon-loving adult, I still enjoy the occasional puffed rice treat, which is why, when I saw the image above, I knew I had to feature it here on the blog. The website, which features these watermelon treats, has instructions for how to make them.
What’s great about these treats isn’t just that they have all the colors of a watermelon (right down to the black chocolate chip “seeds”), but that they actually taste like watermelon thanks to the use of watermelon gelatin mix (which also gives it the red color).
As always, if anyone makes these things, let me know how they turn out. That is, of course, if I don’t make them first!
