  • Place 12 of the vanilla wafers flat side up on a cookie sheet. After unwrapping all of the peppermint patties, place them on top of the wafers.

  • Unwrap the fruit roll-ups (optional) and cut into squares. Place on top of the all of the patties to look like cheese. Then place the sliced gumdrops on the top of that. Add the coconut.

  • Place the other half of the wafers over the top of the coconut. With a small kitchen brush lightly paint a VERY small amount of water on the tops of the cookies. Finally shake or sprinkle a small amount of sesame seeds over the wafers.

These are awesome to take to a summer cookout. I take the easy way out - I use cans of green (lettuce), yellow (mustard) and pink (ketchup) decorator icing. Just squeeze the icing close enough to the edge of the cookies (top and bottom buns) for the frosting to ooze out a bit when the 'burger' is added. They are better if prepared the day before - the vanilla wafer gets a chance to soften a bit. For the burger I use Keebler's Grasshopper cookies. Read More

These are so adorable. I did substitute the peppermint patty for a keebler fudge shop caramel-filled cookie. The edges really look burgerish. I also used cans of frosting for the lettuce, ketchup & mustard. As an added touch, I got a frozen pound cake and cut it down to string fries size. I added that to the tin and it makes a great Christmas gift. I can't wait to try this for summer bar-b-ques. What a treat. Read More

I took these to a bake sale. I put each cookie in a muffin paper liner with about 1/8 cup Hickory Sticks - Looked JUST like a mini burger and fries. They sold quickly, and were very easy to whip up as we ran out..great recipe!! Read More

I made many changes to this recipe...but it is fun. I used the Keebler Fudge Shoppe Carmel filled cookies and the flavor profile is much more palatable than the mint cookies. I used coconut for the lettuce red and yellow icing tubes for the ketchup and mustard. They were a huge hit at the last BBQ. Read More

This is an adorable idea! Went across well at a kids outing at church. For the veiwer who gave 3 stars because she "couldn't eat them"--get real! Rate the recipe as written not your personal issues. That is the one thing about this site that aggravates me! Read More

AWESOME! Can't tell you what a hit this was with 2-12 year olds. Brought to my 6yr old nephew's bday party and he screamed "Krabby Patties!" (after Sponge Bob tv show). So they are now called Krabby Patties!! I used a brush of honey to stick the sesame seeds on the Nilla wafer "buns" and a little to stick all the layers together. Used yellow and red food coloring mixed with vanilla icing to make "ketchup" and "cheese or mustard" (piped in using plastic bag with corner cut off). The green colored coconut is so realistic looking as lettuce! Took advice from reviewers and used Keebler mint grasshopper cookies for the patty. So incredibly cute. Time consuming so only made 12. Kids can help make too. Thank you!!!! Read More

Adults love it too. I LOVE THE PICKLES AND CHEESE!!! I have made these before. But the recipe I had didn't have the "pickles" or "cheese"!! This takes a little time but the results are REALLY worth the compliments! Read More

These look fantastic... I used Grasshopper cookies for the patties and Rips brand sour candy for lettuce/tomatoes. Couldn't find any orange/apricot fruit leather, so I went with cherry-orange Fruit Roll-Ups. I used yellow frosting as mustard to stick the top bun on, and used a mix of water and pancake syrup to get the seeds to stick (water wasn't enough). Can't wait to show them to my students! Read More

These are great fun for my kids. We made them at our last cookout. There were about 20 kids and it kept them very busy so the adults could chat. Great for the kids creativity. A mess to clean up but isn't anything that involves 20 kids a mess? Read More
