Just like Darlene Brenden'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."

"My kids and I made these years ago. They are absolutely adorable. We dyed the coconut green to resemble lettuce, and used yellow frosting rather than white, to look like mustard. Kids of all ages love them."

"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!"

"I failed to mention in my other review that I brushed the tops with some corn syrup and sprinkled sesame seeds on top. Makes them took more like sesame seed buns."
