Laurie's Little Sprouts Make Hamburger Cookies

On Tuesday I took the "Big Sprouts" (six of my school age daycare kiddos) to the Chatfield Public Library's Elementary Summer Reading Program, where they made hamburger cookies. The boys loved it and had so much fun that we decided that we needed to make these at Laurie's house and teach the littles how to make them too!

Buns ~ Vanilla Wafers
Burger ~ Fudge Mint Cookies
Ketchup ~ Red Frosting
Mustard ~ Yellow Frosting

Corn Syrup (I made a simple syrup with sugar and water) to "glue" the sesame seeds to the "bun".

Mayo ~ white frosting
Lettuce ~ green shredded coconut

Notes: To make this project less expensive, I could have made my own frosting or purchased a little tub of white frosting and added food coloring. I decided to spend a little more in the name of convenience. 12 kids can do a lot of damage with frosting. :) The squeezable icing was perfect and much less messy.

Assembly is pretty simple. Add ketchup to the flat side of a bun, followed by the burger. Top with mustard and bun top. Brush sugar "glue" onto the top of the bun and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    Fun, simple and yummy!
