Rice Krispies Treats – Watermelon
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.
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.
This is some great summer fun!!
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!
