Fluffy Watermelon Spoon Pie

This make-ahead summer treat will make everybody smile as it’s so adorable. Serve semi-frozen for an ice cream texture, or right from your refrigerator.



  • 3 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 1 package (4-ounce) macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin from a 4-count box
  • 1 small package watermelon Kool-Aid®
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1¾ cups cool tap water
  • 2 tablespoons instant French vanilla pudding powder
  • 4 cups cubed seeded watermelon
  • 1 container (16-ounce) whipped topping, divided
  • Optional: ½ cup chocolate chips “seeds”


  1. For the crust, combine all ingredients in a large bowl until mixed well. Press into pie plates or bowl and chill.

  2. For the filling, whisk gelatin, Kool-Aid and sugar into water in a large bowl. Let stand on the counter for 30 minutes.

  3. Fold in pudding mix, watermelon and whipped topping, saving a bit for garnishing. Pour into crust. Garnish as desired.

  4. Refrigerate or freeze several hours before serving. If freezing, let sit out about 25 minutes to slightly thaw for easier spooning.

*You can double the crust to make 2 smaller pies, or one larger pie in a deep-dish bowl. You can also make individual pies like cupcakes.
