First of all, let me apologize for the sloppiest tutorial that has ever been or will ever be on this blog. I don't know about you all but... gah! These days are LONG and I'm spent... Nevermind the fact that this humidity has made me look like a Q-tip. BUT, on the positive side, this post has been brought to you in part by the fame of Chuck Norris (I'm totally not even joking.)
This treat is perfect for upcoming summer cookouts! I sent these to work with Mike and well yeah, his co-workers LOVED them!

Keebler Grasshopper cookies
|Embarrassed at the sloppiness... shame.|
First, pair up your wafer cookies. Make sure you have enough pairs for each of the Grasshoppers.
Next, tint some of your frosting orange, like cheese! Spread this on one of your cookies. I like to use a decorator bottle because it takes minutes to do and is way less messier! But, see the pic below? Yeah, use about twice that amount of icing.
Place your grasshoppers on top of your icing cheese. Had I used more icing, my cheese would have shown a little more.
Then, tint some more frosting red for ketchup. Squirt this on your burger cookie.
Next, add a few drops of green food coloring to the shredded coconut. Cover and shake it baby, shake it! Now you have lettuce!
Top your burgers...
Add a little more "ketchup" to the top "bun" so it will stick to the coconut.
Lastly, paint the top bun of your burgers with egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds. If you're one of those moms that are against raw eggs and don't even let the kiddos eat cookie dough (not saying there is anything wrong with that!), you can use orange juice concentrate instead of egg whites.
There you have it! Itty bitty burger cookies!
*Are you wondering where Chuck Norris fits in to all of this? Well, you're not alone... I'm completely stumped too. You see, I have an ap on my phone that allows me to scan the bar codes on food products and it will tell me the number of Weight Watchers points per serving. I scanned the cookies and well, just look for yourself:
We went to the store this week and I scanned another box... same thing! So weird.
I'm linking this to my favorite linky parties!
