I'm so bummed that it's taken me so long to share this fun and easy Summer food idea with you . . . watermelon lobsters!
I bought a lobster cookie cutter in May, just so that I could use it to cut lobsters out of watermelon rounds . . . and they came out so cute! Kids love them, too.
I made watermelon lobsters for almost every Summer gathering we hosted this year.
They make a great addition to any picnic or BBQ.
I've served them on a white platter, with a few scattered home-grown strawberries . . . and on a bed of frozen blueberries. Both ways look attractive . . . and are a festive addition to any Summer table!
. . . . . . . .
Cut watermelon in half, then cut into disks that are at least 1-inch thick
Using cookie cutter, slowly press down through the watermelon to cut out shape.
*The lobster arms tend to be more fragile, so be careful when removing the watermelon from the cookie cutter.
Display on a bed of frozen blueberries, or on a platter.
Add chocolate chips for eyes (see photo below), optional
. . . . . . . .
Cut the extra pieces of watermelon into cubes and serve in a bowl
LET'S STAY in touch!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
I love reading your comments and appreciate them so much!
