Rice Krispies Treats – Watermelon

Total ingredients:
8 cups marshmallows
6 T butter
food coloring – green and red
8 cups crispy rice cereal
a few chocolate chips or raisins for “watermelon seeds”

Grease two 8-9″ round cake pans.

Make 2 batches as following, first with green food coloring, then with red.
Melt in pan on low heat, stirring gently:
4 cups marshmallows
3 T butter
Remove from heat and add color, one drop at a time.  Once the color is uniform, add the crispy rice cereal.

Divide in 1/2 – make a ring around the inside of 2 greased cake pans.  You might want to rub your fingers in butter to do this so it doesn’t stick to you, as it’s kinda hot.  🙂

Make the red batch, same directions as above.  Divide in 1/2 again – press into center of the pans.

While still warm (not too hot) place chocolate chips or raisins as watermelon seeds.

Place chocolate chips or raisins in the red area while still warm.
Press them in a bit so they’ll stay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cutting with a serrated knife seems to work best.
It might be helpful to dip the knife in a glass of water if it’s sticking.

Apple Crisp Recipe

apples – pealed, cored and sliced – enough to fill up the pan – we use a glass rectangular pan (or peaches or cherries)

Drizzle the apples with: 2 T lemon juice Sprinkle with 2 T brown sugar and a bit of cinnamon and a little nutmeg.

In a bowl, use a pastry blender or fingers to combine:

1/2 c oatmeal
1/4 c flour
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 – 1/2 c butter
1 T cinnamon
This mixture should be lightly worked so that is crumbly. Crumble or spread the crumbly mixture over the apples.

Bake 30-40 mnutes at 375 degrees. Let cool a few minutes. It’s delicious served with vanilla ice cream. 🙂 We like it warm, however it’s also good after it’s cooled. This is great in the fall with orchard-fresh apples!
