Watermelon is the quintessential summer treat. And you've got to try this hack before the season is over.

But this trick is really just that — a trick — that will leave your guests' minds reeling at your end-of-summer barbecues.

The key is to use two watermelons: one for the "shell," and one to create the smooth watermelon inside. Put them together, and you have a fruit that's ready to jump out of its skin (literally) with excitement for your next party.
