A few things come to mind when I think about summer - the beach, cookouts and watermelon. Through the hot summer months, I probably consume a whole watermelon a week (no exaggeration). Not only is a great way to stay hydrated, I am pretty addicted to the flavor. Lucky for me, there are plenty of watermelon fruit drinks on the market if I can't get my paws on a slice of melon.
We had plans for a 4th of July cookout this past weekend which got rained out thanks to the storm who became Hurricane Arthur. We planned on spending Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the beach - the outdoor plans were ruined but we still enjoyed a lot of watermelon flavored treats.

Mix together Cool Whip frosting (best invention EVER) and green food coloring. Top the frosting mixture on top of the cooled cupcakes and sprinkle chocolate chips on top.
