Hold the onions and turn off the grill! These Mini Burger Cookies look like the real deal, but they’re actually a sweet, tiny, fun dessert.
These adorable Mini Burger Cookies will surely have your kids doing a double take.
I spotted these Mini Burger Cookies over at Six Sisters’ Stuff and knew I had to try them out with my own family. As a rule of thumb with any treat that I have my kids help me with, I try to make sure I have all the ingredients ready to go and it has to be simple and fast because their attention spans are short.
Start by laying out the vanilla wafers on a cookie sheet — these are going to be our hamburger buns. Next, add a grasshopper fudge cookie or “hamburger patty” on top. You can add a dot of frosting on the bottom wafer to make sure the cookie sticks to it if you want.
For my tomato, ketchup and mustard I used Betty Crocker’s decorator frosting, which is already colored perfectly and is in an easy-to-use tube.
I made a ring of frosting as the tomato and a drizzle of yellow frosting as the mustard.
To make the “lettuce,” just add green food coloring to some coconut and shake it around in a plastic bag until it’s all green. Generously top your burgers with the green coconut. This part can be a little messy, hence the cookie sheet for easy clean up.
How cute are these?
I have to admit that sometimes “cute” food doesn’t always taste good, but these burgers were the bomb!
Make these sweet and tasty burgers for your next cook out!
