Instructions Checklist
  • If desired, to prepare the Watermelon-Seed Ice Bowl, line a 9-inch pie plate with plastic wrap. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons watermelon seeds. Add 1/2 cup water; freeze until firm. Meanwhile, pour 1/2 inch water in a 3-cup bowl. Freeze until firm. Remove from freezer and place a 1-cup bowl on top of the ice layer. Fill with water. Remove seeded ice from pie plate and break into pieces; place around small bowl inside the large bowl. Pour very cold water around seeded ice pieces to fill larger bowl; freeze until firm. To unmold, run warm water inside small bowl and on outside of large bowl.

*Caution:

Edible flowers can be purchased at many supermarkets. If picking wild edible flowers, make sure they are chemical-free.
