Watermelon Berry Star

Here is another easy, fun, and festive patriotic treat for this coming weekend. Nothing says summer more than watermelon and berries.  Happy 4th of July!!

1 Large watermelon
Cool Whip

Cut a three-inch thick slice from the center of a watermelon. Place it flat on a cutting board and use a sharp kitchen knife to cut a star shape. (I printed out a star to use as a template.) Pat the watermelon dry with a paper towel.

Place the star on your serving dish or cake stand. Pipe some cool whip around the bottom edge of the star. I put some into a plastic bag and cut off the tip to pipe it out. Spread additional cool whip on the top of the watermelon. Decorate with berries as desired!

Wish I could claim this star idea as my own. I saw a picture of this on my apartment newsletter this week, but there wasn't a source. It was so simple and the watermelon and berries taste amazing together!
