Watermelon Microwave S'mores

Watermelon just says summer to me and s'mores are one of my favorites too. So, combining them 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.


Earlier this month I got to participate in Summer Camp 2016 over on Design Dazzle. I shared these fun summer microwave s'mores, but, just in case you missed them over there:)

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.

First, create 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, the candy coating will firm up faster in the refrigerator.

Once the the candy coating has hardened, place half of a large marshmallow, cut-side-down, on a plain cracker. Heat in microwave on a microwave safe plate until the marshmallow puffs. (Note: Microwaves vary so watch carefully. Mine puffed in 11-12 seconds in a 1200 watt oven. Fresh marshmallows puff the fastest.) 

Top with a watermelon-decorated Ritz cracker.


If you’re not planning to serve the s'mores immediately, set aside to cool.


These fun fruit-shaped s'mores were inspired by the Fruitilicious Party Decor posted earlier this summer on Design Dazzle. Did you see it? It was so much fun, 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, yellow candy melts, and more green candy melts. Dip the cracker tops and pretzels and let cool. Follow the steps above to heat and assemble.


Fun right? (I have a good friend who says this pineapple might need some sunglasses like the Teddy Grahams in my Beach Party Microwave S'mores. What do you think?)

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy summer!
