• 1 firm seedless watermelon (make sure it's not too ripe)
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup water...
• 1/2 cup fresh lime juice

You will need:
Maple leaf shaped cookie cutter + popsicle sticks

Slice watermelon into approx. 1" wedges. Use maple leaf cookie cutter to cut a leaf out of each wedge. Transfer leaf shaped watermelon slices to a 9 x 12 dish or a dish large enough to fit the slices in an even layer.

Prepare syrup: Add sugar and water to a small saucepan, and bring to a boil, whisking constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and
let cool.

Pour mixture over the watermelon slices, and let soak for about 20 minutes per side (40 minutes total).

Carefully insert a popsicle stick into the bottom of each maple leaf, pushing through the bottom center. Place the popsicles on a foil-lined baking sheet and place in the freezer to freeze for at least 2 hours.

Remove from the freezer and enjoy!
