|Don't they look like cute little burgers?|
Keebler mint grasshopper cookies
green food coloring
red easy squeeze frosting (or regular frosting colored red)
yellow easy squeeze frosting ( or regular colored yellow!)
1. Put some coconut in a plastic bag and add a few drops of green food coloring. Shake well until the flakes are tinted green, adding more if necessary.
2. Squeeze a small amount of frosting on the flat side of one vanilla wafer to attach the grasshopper cookie. I've found that applying just a little bit of pressure while twisting them together works well to get them to stick without crumbling ( kind of like reversing the twisting apart of an Oreo! )
3. Put a smear of red frosting and yellow frosting near the outside edges of the grasshopper cookie. You don't need a lot in the center, but you want it to ooze out a bit on the outside to look like the ketchup and mustard.
4. Sprinkle a little bit of the tinted coconut on top of the icing for the lettuce, then attach the top vanilla wafer using the same slight pressure and twisting technique. If it looks like your hamburger needs more lettuce, you can "dip" the finished cookie into the coconut flakes so a little more sticks to the oozed out condiments.
|My little helper and her friend helped make some cookies last year.|
That's it! I've seen some more ambitious people brush a little corn syrup on the top bun and sprinkle on some sesame seeds, but I've found that they still look super cute without that extra work.
