Creative Watermelon Treats for Your Backyard Party

Written by Country Home Learning Center on June 24, 2019

There’s nothing that sums up the joys of summer better than a cold slice of watermelon on a hot day. But we’ve found a few twists on the old theme that might come close.

If you’re looking for some creative (and tasty) indoor activities to do with sweaty kids, these fresh new watermelon treats are sure to brighten faces and sweeten dispositions.  They’re perfect for a backyard barbecue or a youngster’s summer birthday party.  Don’t forget to get the kids involved in this DIY fun!

Watermelon Cake

We love this luscious version of a summer icon. Watermelon Cake is an eye-popping addition to a backyard luncheon or a neighborhood barbecue.

Jell-O Watermelon

What’s not to like? Jell-O Watermelon is jiggly, cool and sweet, and just as fun to make as it is to eat. Throw it in the freezer for watermelon popsicles your kids will love!

Watermelon Fudge

Smooth vanilla fudge with chocolate chip watermelon seeds. And, yep, you guessed it, it looks just like watermelon! It might not be as crunchy as watermelon, but it will surely be delicious.

Marshmallow Slices

Today might just be one of those days when you need a different kind of watermelon – like a sweet, marshmallowy, chocolatey one!  These watermelon Marshmallow Slices are adorable, easy to make and only require a few ingredients. The best kind of recipe!

Cake Pops

We saved these lovely Cake Pops for last.  They’ll certainly bring Ooos and Ahhhhs to any backyard gathering. They’re almost too pretty to eat, but so tasty they’ll definitely disappear! Make ahead and freeze for a very special anytime treat.

So which one will you try first? We’d love to see your tasty watermelons. Share pictures of your masterpieces with us on social media!
