  2. Next take two vanilla wafers and put a blob of yellow frosting on one and a blob of red on the other wafer.
  3. On one wafer put a Thin Mint Cookie and the other put your coconut.
  4. Put a little more frosting on the thin mint cookie and stick it all together.

  1. For lettuce and the other condiments I use airheads candy and cut or use a cookie cutter to get my tomato, lettuce, onion and cheese. I made a hamburger cake for the Wendy's restaurant founders dayand that's what I came up with and everyone loved it!! Hope that helps Rapunzel. And. To Six Sisters, awesome job on these cookie burgers they are so cute.
  2. We've been making these since our teenagers were little with a few differences. My kids don't like coconut. We made them to look like cheeseburgers. A little Karo Syrup on top with sesame seeds, orange frosting for the cheese, Keebler grasshopper cookie and then green icing for the lettuce. Always a big hit!
