Mini Burger Cookies

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

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.

Mini Hamburger Cookies Recipe

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.

How to Assemble Mini Burger Cookies

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.

Use Frosting for Ketchup on Mini Burger Cookies

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.

Use Coconut for the Lettuce

How cute are these?

Green Coconut is the Lettuce

I have to admit that sometimes “cute” food doesn’t always taste good, but these burgers were the bomb!
