A Last Taste of Summer!

Goodness - it's been a while since I posted here!  I've been busy making creations to submit to the Papercrafts call that were due tonight (!) as well as making bunches of baby cards for my friend who owns a baby clothes shop.

But I did want to share this super fun summertime dessert treat that my blogging friend Mara posted a few weeks ago. (she has the MOST mouth watering recipes on her blog along with her delightful cards!) She found the original recipe at Glorious Treats.  I finally made it this past weekend.

It's Rice Krispies Watermelon!!

Look how fun this looks on a plate -  I took one to my grand nephew's 2nd birthday party on Saturday and the 2nd one to church for coffee hour on Sunday -  it was a big hit both days.
 I used mini chocolate bits for my 'seeds' - how cute are these slices?!
I'll be back tomorrow with a taste of fall!

Thanks for stopping by!

Look at you being all domestic! =)

What a fun and creative take on this favorite treat of ours. Thanks for the inspiration. I'll have to give this a try...maybe in the shape of a turkey...LOL
