Watermelon Petit Fours Print Email

To make this summer refresher even easier, add well-drained crushed pineapple to canned cream cheese frosting and use that instead of the frosting recipe below.

12 (3-inch) cubes seedless watermelon
1 cup Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe follows)
12 candied almonds
Sugar in the Raw, for sprinkling

Arrange watermelon cubes on a serving platter. Place frosting in a zip-top bag and trim off a bit of one bottom corner. Decoratively pipe frosting onto each watermelon cube. Place an almond at the top of frosting on each petit four. Sprinkle with raw sugar and serve immediately. - Watermelon Promotion Board

1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple
1 (8-ounce) package low-fat cream cheese

1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place pineapple on several layers of paper towels and top with more paper towels. Press to remove as much juice as possible. Beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Mix in pineapple. Keep refrigerated.
