Watermelon Cookies on a Stick

I was so enthralled when I saw these watermelon pops from Tidy Mom!  So easy, but so cute! I knew immediately that I had to convert them from fruit to cookie.

I simply made up some sugar cookie dough, grabbed my "candy corn" cookie cutter from Copper Gifts and went to town. Be sure to insert the sticks before baking!

When eating watermelon (which I love), I prefer seedless (best invention ever), but for a cookie it must have seeds to kick up the cuteness factor!  To top off the royal icing, I used the seeds that I had on hand~dark chocolate covered pomegranate seeds from Trader Joe's:) Unlike watermelon seeds, they're tasty and you'll want to eat them by the handful. Place the seeds on the icing while it is still wet.

The two-tone decorated rind idea was taken from the talented Glorious Treats' darling watermelon cookies.  Glory decorated them to perfection! I used a green AmeriColor Gourmet Writer to achieve the dark green contrast.

For the red, I used AmeriColor Super Red soft gel paste. With it, you will get a true red! Thanks for the great suggestion, Bridget! Besides beautiful cookies, Bridget's blog, Bake at 350 is full of great ideas!

As I've said before, it's such a pleasure to "know" so many creative bloggers and benefit from their ideas and talents!

These watermelon cookies on a stick are such fun!  Your munchkins will love them!

  29. How eye popping are these. The two-toned rind is so fun! Tell me something, am I doing something wrong. Your royal ixing looks shiny. Mine always looks like a matte finish. I like matte, but shiny is cute too. Joni
