mini burger cookie bites

yahoo! it's summer!
time for some bbq burgers! 
are you ready to make some of these cuties?

but uh oh!
my kids are picky eaters.
a lot of it my fault, i know.

but i am doing my best to change that.

they actually had broccoli the other day and didn't freak out like i expected.

they do love burgers though but this version calls for 
NO COOKING. 
yup, no cooking!
man that sounds lovely to me, since i am a lousy cook.

this version isn't along the line of the broccoli category but it can be a treat for the kids after they eat their broccoli.  

they are gonna love it really!

nonetheless, my kids don't really care for coconut like some other mini burger cookies use so i made another version of burger cookie minis without the coconut.

oh, by the way, the coconut is used for the lettuce in the burger, but this burger is using another way to do it.

what'll you need to make these?
this:
 get betty crocker's green and red cookie icings as you can see, and the yellow cake mate icing. you'll see why if you choose to read on (which i hope you do)...

ok first:
yup, your bottom bun.

stop looking down there...
next up:
the trick here is when you add the mint cookie "burger", try to lay it so it squeezes out some of the green icing to make it look like the lettuce!
see, it's coconut free :)

and you can tell by the pics there's no need to get all fancy and stuff.
that's what makes this so fun to do.

my daughter is actually making these while i take pictures of her work.
i promised i wouldn't show her wearing her pj's on the www but that's besides the point.

now where were we?
oh yeah, 
as you can see, the red and green icing flows thinly out of the tube.

this is where the yellow icing comes in handy.
look at its consistency:
doesn't it look like toothpaste?

but it works wonderfully to hold it all together when you do this next step:
oh!
before i forget to tell you, 
eeeew! scary burger!
let's pretend we didn't see that...

look at this one instead:
all you need now is to package it!
so get this:
i got the fry liners at world market.
that's an awesome store i tell ya!

anyway, then do this:
    a liner cut as above will get you 4 wrappers out of one liner.
then:
 oh how dang cute again!
so go ahead!


   promise i won't tell!
they aren't as sweet as you think either.
they just taste like a thick mint cookie. 
a yummy thick mint cookie!
 you can even add coconut if you want :)

hey! father's day is coming up this weekend!
make a bunch for dear ole' dad!

HAPPY DADDY'S DAY
TO ALL U AWESOME DADS!

OR 
make it for any holiday or just plain because :)

  2. heehee! who'd ever thought a coconut mini burger would taste good? btw, you can always use another chocolate covered cookie beside a mint one-just search the grocery aisle-i'm sure you'll find something! :)

  11. Hi! I googled "H-themed snacks" for my daughter's kindergarten snack and came across this post. Oh my goodness. THANK YOU! This was, not only the easiest thing to make, but so tasty! My daughter cannot wait to bring them to school tomorrow. The "NO BAKE" was key! I only wish I could have found the mini wrappers in time!
