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."


  • 1/2 cup vanilla frosting
  • Red and green liquid or paste food coloring
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 80 vanilla wafers (about 12 ounces)
  • 40 chocolate-coated mint cookies (about 12 ounces)


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
