Directions for: Mascarpone-Filled Watermelon


1 medium seedless watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 cup heavy cream, chilled

1 cup (8 oz) mascarpone cheese, chilled

⅛ tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp agave syrup

Zest of 1 lime

1 lime, halved

⅓ cup mini chocolate chips


1. With a 1/2-teaspoon measuring spoon, scoop out the center of each watermelon cube. Set the cubes scooped-side-down on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the cream, mascarpone, cinnamon, vanilla, agave, lime zest and the juice of one of the lime halves. Beat until nice and thick using a hand mixer. Set aside.

3. Squeeze the remaining lime half over the watermelon. Flip the watermelon cubes over and fill each with 1 teaspoon of the mascarpone filling. Top with chocolate chips and serve.
