Mini Burger Bites

Our small group had a cook-out on Sunday. I thought it would be fun to bring a kid-friendly dessert, so I made mini burger bites.

The ingredients:

cookies 01

The process:

1. Tint the coconut green – this will be the “lettuce”

2. Split the Nilla wafers in half. One half will be the top buns. Spread them with some honey and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. The other half are the bottom buns. Leave them plain.

3. Begin to assemble the cookies. Put one chocolate cookie on top of the bottom (plain) Nilla wafer. Use red and yellow frosting to make the mustard and ketsup on the edge of the chocolate “burger.”

Viola! Mini burger bites!

Cute, but lots of work. Each cookie took 60 seconds to assemble (Steven timed me). I did 20 of them and then called it quits.

    I bow to you culinary skill! Wow! When I first read “split the ‘Nilla wafers in half” I thought you meant literally split one cookie in half. I couldn’t imagine how that would work. Whew! I’m glad that wasn’t the case.

    What a clever idea!! And they look “real” too. Did they go over well with the kids?

    Holy cow. How did you feel when they all got eaten. I guess you could call that performance art!

    You are just too cool for words.
