Note: Grown-ups must be present to help with preparation



  1. Line a baking tray or plate with grease-proof or baking paper. Check the tray size first to make sure it will fit in your fridge! 
  2. Cut the watermelon into rounds, about 1-2cm thick. Using round cookie cutters, cut circles from the watermelon slices. Cut each circle in half to create semi-circles. 
  3. Place the watermelon semi-circles on a couple of pieces of kitchen paper and pat to remove excess water. 
  4. Break the chocolate into a small microwave safe bowl or jug, then cook in the microwave for 30 second bursts, stirring between each one to ensure it melts evenly.  
  5. Dip the end of a watermelon semi-circle into the melted chocolate to make the ladybirds head. Place on the prepared tray and repeat until you have used them all up. 
  6. Add 2 candy eyeballs to each ladybird. 
  7. Finish by pushing chocolate chips, point side down, into each ladybird for the spots. 
  8. Place in the fridge until set, then serve immediately.
