Rice Krispie Watermelon
A fun twist on Rice Krispy bars and a touch of summer any season.
Make rice krispies as directed but use strawberry marshmallows. Stir to cool slightly and form into a oval watermelon shape.
if the bar mix is a little cooler it will hold together better
butter or spray your hands well
I used a piece of wax paper to help shape and then let it cool wrapped in it which also helped to hold the form
Make a batch of fondant and tint 3/4 of it dark green and 1/4 light green.
roll out dark green about half the size you will need, then place long narrow pieces of light green for stripes, continue to roll fondant blending the two colors together until large enough to cover watermelon. Make leaves and vine pieces out of remaining fondant
Spread canned or home made pink icing over cereal bars then lay fondant over, trimming edges and smoothing as you go. Place vine and leaf pieces using a small amount of water to adhere.
Slice and eat!
