Day 178: Watermelon Rice Krispies Treats

Happy labor day weekend everyone! I love hot summery days (like today) and long weekends. And you know what else I like?


Watermelons and rice krispie treats! So why not put them together?


These are the cutest rice krispie treats ever! They're little watermelons with chocolate chip seeds.


I've got to tell you this- I LOVE rice krispies. I love them as cereal and of course, rice krispie treats.


I don't eat them too much, but when I do, I get kind of addicted. I just keep eating them!


These are perfect for summer weather and they taste amazing. It's also a lot less messy compared to juicy watermelon, but just as delicious for sure! :)
