Melon Brain
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

Made from nothing more than a small, round seedless watermelon, this spooky cerebral creation is bound to turn heads.


  • 1 small seedless watermelon
  • Cooking Directions

    Use a vegetable peeler to remove the entire green rind, exposing the inner white rind.

    Slice off the bottom of the melon to create a flat base that will keep it from rolling.

    With a toothpick, outline squiggly furrows that resemble the folded surface of a brain.

    Finally, carve narrow channels along the tracings with a sharp paring knife (a parent's job) to expose the pink fruit beneath the rind.
