I don’t know about you, but watermelon screams summer to me and s’mores are one of my favorites. So, combining the two into one adorable treat, awesome! Whip up a batch of these easy microwave s’mores with your kids. It’s a fun way to spend time together in the kitchen.
I’m Laura from Left on Peninsula Road and I’m excited to be here for Summer Camp 2016. S’mores are a fun summer treat, and this microwave version is so fun for summer parties.
Supplies for Watermelon Microwave S’mores
- Ritz Crackers for a Sweet & Salty S’more (or try Vanilla Wafers if you prefer)
- Large Marshmallows (cut in half)
- Mini Chocolate Chips (6 per s’more)
- Pink Candy Melts (approximately 3 per s’more)
- Green Candy Melts (I melted about 1-2 per s’more)
- Optional for Pineapple: Yellow Candy Melts, pretzel sticks, Town House (or other oval crackers or cookies)
How To Assemble Your Watermelon S’mores Treats
This sweet and salty Watermelon-shaped S’more goes together a lot like my Back to School Apple S’mores.
Start by creating your candy-coated s’mores tops. Melt green candy melts according to package directions. Roll edges of half of the crackers in green candy coating. Set aside to harden. (I used a wire cooling rack.) Next, melt pink candy melts. Spread in a circle on the top of each green-edged cracker. Add chocolate chip seeds.
Let the candy-coated tops cool before the next step. If you’re in a hurry, they harden faster in the refrigerator.
If you’re not planning to serve immediately, set aside to cool.
I have to tell you that these s’mores were inspired by the Fruitilicious Party Decor Toni posted earlier this summer. Did you see it? I loved it so much, I decided to try a pineapple s’more too. If you’d like to try to make some pineapple s’mores, you’ll need some oval crackers, pretzel pieces, and more green candy-coating. Dip the cracker tops and pretzels and let cool. Follow the steps above to heat and assemble.
