Watermelon has always reminded me of summertime. It's always cool and refreshing, and there is just something about that pink and green color combination that makes me smile. Since it's not watermelon season just yet, I wanted to re-create everyone's favorite summer fruit in bar form — blondie bars, to be more specific.
To make these fun treats, you will need a couple of ingredients to provide the watermelon flavor.
The watermelon supreme fruit juice and watermelon-flavored Jell-O were found at my local food store and provided the watermelon flavor. If you can't find these items, then you can always leave them out and just go for bars with the watermelon look.
Once the batter is mixed, divide it into 2 sections. Tint 1/3 of the batter light green and 2/3 of the batter pink. If you want to go for an authentic watermelon look, then sprinkle some black sesame seeds on top. You could probably use mini chocolate chips too.
After the entire pan has cooled, cut into triangle slices. Then dig in (milk might be required!).
The watermelon flavor definitely comes through in these bars and is a fun start to the almost summer season.
