Original recipe yields 2 dozen

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, combine food coloring with a few drops of water. Add coconut and cover the container, shake until coconut is tinted. Set aside.
  3. Place 1/2 of the vanilla wafers, flat side up, in an ungreased cookie sheet. Top each wafer with a peppermint patty. Place in the oven about 1 minute or just until chocolate begins to soften.
  4. Remove cookies from oven and sprinkle each mint with 1/2 teaspoon coconut (for lettuce). Place another vanilla wafer on top and press gentle. With a clean paint brush, brush the top of each hamburger with just enough water to moisten so that the sesame seeds will stick when sprinkled on top of each cookie. NOTE: You can use canned chocolate frosting in place of peppermint patty, then eliminate the baking.

I tried both the peppermint patty and grasshopper cookie as the meat. The Keebler grasshopper cookie had a much better taste and was more realistic looking with its uneven edges and thinner patty. I glued the cookies on with a dab of melted chocolate, placed in the center of the meat. I painted spots on the top bun with Lyle's Golden Syrup and dipped in the seeds. Piped yellow and red frosting just around the underside edge of the top bun. Placed green coconut on the meat and applied light pressure when placing the top bun on. This caused the frosting to ooze out just enough to look like ketchup and melted cheese. Easy, fun and taste good too.

i've made these cookies before, and i used the wafer, grasshopper(mint) cookies, and for lettuce and mustard i used white frosting, divided in half, tinted with food coloring, put down a wafer, spread with yellow, add mint cookie, spread with green then top with wafer, slightly wet with egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds.. no cooking, then arrange hamburgers on large tray and top with potato sticks, now you have hamburger and french fries

These are SO MUCH fun!! The whole family just loved them and couldn't get enough!! Some reviewers say they don't taste all that great, but I disagree- and I'm not even a big peppermint patty fan. My 3-year old son helped make these (he unwrapped all the candy). We made them for us, and my 5-year old daughter as an after school snack. They're all gone now- should have doubled the recipe! My daughter wants me to make them for her class. My husband wants me to make them for his work! What a fun recipe. Oh, I used a dab of honey on the inside of the buns, to help it stick. I found that just using water to make the sesame seeds stick didn't work very well, so I plopped some corn syrup into the water, and used that. It worked very, very well. (I didn't totally stir it together, but dragged my paintbrush through it). I love this recipe, and will definitely make it again!
