Cutest. Hamburgers. Ever.
Hamburger cookies may not sound appetizing at first, but watch the video and you’ll want to make these cute little treasures for your next dessert.
1 box of Nilla Wafers (24 needed for this recipe)
6 drops of Green Food Coloring
Red & Yellow Icing
½ c. Flaked or Shredded Coconut
1 box of Grasshopper Cookies
In a plastic bag, mix the green food coloring with the coconut. Seal the bag and mix the ingredients together. Do not completely mix together but have flakes with different intensities of green. Add honey and sesame seeds in separate piles on a plate. Take 12 of the Nilla Wafers and dip the tops of the wafers first into the honey. Second, dip the wafer into the sesame seeds. Bake the 12 wafers at 250° for 5 minutes. Voila! You now have the top of the Hamburger Cookie bun. Take the other 12 wafer cookies and turn them upside down. Layer each with yellow icing (mustard), a Grasshopper Cookie (the burger), and red icing (Ketchup). Then, sprinkle on the coconut (lettuce) and top with the cooled top wafer (sesame seed bun). Serve.
