“I made these every year for our 5 kids to take to school on their birthdays. Other kids and teachers would swarm to see them ! Our kids are now teenagers and their old school friends still talk about how "cool" they are !”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 48 vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 24 peppermint patties
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 (12 ounce) container vanilla frosting
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • green food coloring
  • red food coloring
  • yellow food coloring
  • potato sticks


  1. Place coconut into a ziploc sandwich bag and drop in several drops of green food coloring. Roll around in your hands until all the coconut is tinted. Set aside. In a separate bowl, tint some frosting red like ketchup and in another bowl, tint frosting yellow like mustard. Set frosting aside.
  2. Decide how many cookies you need, unwrap that many peppermint patties and set out twice as many wafter cookies. Set half the wafer cookies, flat side up, onto a cookie sheet. Put a small dab of vanilla frosting onto cookie and gently press down a peppermint patty. Spread some "ketchup" and some "mustard" on top of the patty, sprinkle some "lettuce" on it and then place another cookie on top. Brush a little honey on the top "bun" and sprinkle some sesame seeds onto them. Set aside.
  3. Take triangularly cut sheets of paper and fold them to resemble a french fry 'bag'. If you want (and our kids LOVED this), use markers first to draw some golden arches and write "Mc ___(your childs name) on them. Then, tape them together and fill with some potato sticks.
  4. Place a cheeseburger and bag of fries on a small paper plate and serve !
