Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 box of off brand vanilla wafers
  • 1 box of Keebler Grasshopper cookies
  • 2/3 C shortening
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • 23 Tbsp milk
  • Desired food coloring (red for ketchup, green for lettuce, yellow for mustard or cheese, etc)

Instructions

  1. Cream 2/3 C shortening in a medium sized bowl.
  2. Add in powdered sugar, vanilla and 2 Tbsp of milk. Using a hand mixer, beat until smooth and well blended. If the icing seems too thick, add in about 1 more Tbsp of milk, until decorating consistency (easily spreadable yet still stiff).
  3. Split the icing in half and transfer into separate bowls. Stir in food coloring until desired color.
  4. Empty out 1 box of off brand vanilla wafers into a large bowl or pan (to make for easier prepping) and 1 box of Keebler Grasshoppers into another.
  5. Spread half of the vanilla wafers with your red icing.
  6. Press one grasshopper into each half.
  7. Then spread the other half of the wafers with the green icing and top each grasshopper cookie.
  8. Press down slightly to give hamburger appearance and ensure the cookie holds together.
  9. Store in a sealed container for at least 1 day before serving. This will give the vanilla wafer time to soften so the cookies can be easily eaten.
