Pretty little thangs

I randomly whipped these little notecards up for a co-workers wedding send off filled with cookies at work.

I thought I'd share. Can't live withoat you. Ha, I'm still giggling. Now, say it out load.

Hamburgers for dessert!

Who doesn't love hamburgers? Wait, well...I guess vegans don't. Crap, anyways. MOST people love them a good juicy hamburger including about 92.7% of the people I run around with.

So, the real question? Who doesn't love dessert? Nobody. I don't care who you are there is a dessert everyone loves. If you want to argue about, I've got better things to do.

So for memorial weekend I made these little treats. And with the mix of randomness that makes them look like hamburgers they tasted delicious. Even after the nilla wafer got a little soft. Did I ever tell you I'm a sucker for stale nilla wafers? No? Okay, I am!

So, Anyways, I'll get to the good stuff.

1 box of nilla wafers (I even used the generic Wal-Mart brand)
1 small bag of coconut
Green gel food coloring
Mint wafers (if you're out of girl scout cookies, Keebler makes a great mint wafer)
One tube of red icing (yes, that's right, I bought mine in a tube!)
One tube of yellow icing (don't hate!)

Once you've got all of the ingredients I started out emptying the coconut into a large zip lock and used a whole tube of green gel food coloring. Then squish with your hands. Next, ice the flat side of the nilla wafer with yellow icing. Place mint wafer on top of icing. Grab another nilla wafer spread red icing on it and sprinkle the green coconut on the icing then place ontop of wafer. BAM. You're done and you have the worlds cutest hamburger dessert in your hand.

Now try and refrain from eating all of them! Total I made 40 minus two (because they accidentally went in my mouth). And the ingredients are fairly inexpensive!
