Burger Bites Cookies

I have had the Cookies For Kids Cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens since I was a child. My favorite recipe was the Burger Bites, and when Zoe looked through this cookbook, that was the first one to catch her eye. This recipe is fun to do, very easy to reduce or multiply as needed, and tastes awesome! We decided that we would make these for a Karaoke Extravaganza at a good friend's house. The cookies were gone within an hour, and Zoe rocked singing Code Monkey!

  • few drops water
  • 1 drop green food coloring
  • 1/4 cup flaked coconut
  • 48 vanilla wafers
  • 24 chocolate covered peppermint patties
  • water
  • sesame seeds or poppy seeds
  1. Preheat oven to 350degrees. In ziploc baggie or lidded container, combine the few drops of water, food coloring, and coconut. Shake until coconut is all about the same shade of green.
  2. Place half of vanilla wafers, flat side up, on ungreased cookie sheet. Top each with a peppermint patty. Place in the oven for about 1 minute or just until chocolate begins to soften.
  3. Sprinkle each with a little coconut and top with another vanilla wafer. Press gently.
  4. With clean paintbrush or finger, brush the top of each vanilla wafer with water and sprinkle sesame seeds.
