Fun to make, I used homemade frosting, takes a few to get the hang of getting them to stay on the wafer and the just right amount of frosting. Cute idea
Interesting and tasty.
I used just a tiny amount of corn syrup and applied it with a small new artists' type paint brush. Worked like a charm. I was afraid the corn syrup would be sticky, but it wasn't at all. I made yellow frosting for the mustard, but didn't have red paste coloring, so for the ketchup I used melted red candy melts. That worked perfectly. My granddaughter and I made these together and they were a huge hit at the gathering we took them to. Tasted good too!
oh yeah, I used honey for the top bun (to put on the sesame seeds).
very VERY cute. kind of messy and takes a while to make, but absolutely worth the effort.
this was a quick fun project to make for my daughters graduation party...I cannot rate the taste- as there was not one left over for me to try!
Well, I haven't made it yet, just found it. But it is sooo simple and just as clever as it can be!! Great for a pot luck or family picnic!!
Oh, also... we use Grasshopper cookies (chocolate-dipped chocolate mint cookies) for a more consistent texture and a great "hamburger pattie" look. Make these cookies a day or two in advance so that they will soften up and become easier to eat.
My family has been making these for 25 years, and they're always a hit. As others have mentioned, we add green-tinted coconut for "lettuce." We also use white only white frosting and call it "mayo" in order to minimize the dyes. Instead of corn syrup or egg whites, I like to heat up a little honey to make it thin and watery, then paint that on the top of the "bun" to make the sesame seeds stick. I LOVE the previous poster's suggestion to serve them with potato stick "fries" and Nickl Nip "drinks"!
I made these when I was in 4th grade (15 years ago now!) for a demonstration speech! Fantastic recipe for kids to do obviously
