Here is a cute idea for the 4th of July (or any day, really!). Anya had a blast making this and both Eric and Anya loved eating it!
What Anya had to say:
I loved it. The watermelon garden was beautiful. You use white chocolate chips, watermelon, and blueberries. Of course, who could live without blueberries? And you make butterflies and flowers. Use sticks to hold up the flowers and butterflies. Come on... this is the best recipe. Everyone should make it. You can make it any day and everywhere. So go out today and make our treat. Make sure you don't put it in the oven. It's a good thing forever. The end.
Idea adapted from Turtle Magazine
1 round seedless watermelon
White Chocolate Chips
Flower & Butterfly cookie cutters
Cut about 1/4" off the bottom of the watermelon so it will sit flat.
Cut watermelon in half and set aside top part.
Scoop out inside of the bottom with melon baller. Fill bottom with watermelon balls, blueberries, and white chocolate chips.
Slice top half of watermelon in 1/2" slices. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Stick skewers into shapes and then stake into the bottom watermelon.
