Hamburger Cookies Recipe
Just like Darlene Markel's Caramel Apple Bites (see recipe finder), Pat Carter shares a sweet treat children can help create. "My daughters and I form an assembly line to put these 'sandwich' cookies together," she reveals from Clearwater, Florida. "We have lots of fun, and the cookies taste great."
- 1/2 cup vanilla frosting
- Red and green liquid or paste food coloring
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 80 vanilla wafers (about 12 ounces)
- 40 chocolate-coated mint cookies (about 12 ounces)
- Divide frosting into two bowls; add red food coloring to one bowl. Place coconut in a resealable plastic bag; add green food coloring and shake to coat.
- Frost the bottoms of 40 vanilla wafers with white frosting; set aside. Frost the bottoms of remaining wafers with red frosting. Sprinkle coconut over red frosting; top with a chocolate cookie. Place white-frosted wafers, frosting side down, on top of cookies. Squeeze wafers together, forming sandwich cookies, and invert. Yield: 40 cookies.

These are a hit with kids AND adults! Make a great tail gaiting snack. Also great using small peppermint patties for the burger. Great when kept cool in the ice chest!
