Mini-Burgers for April Fool's Day

I thought I first saw this at the Family Fun website, but when I went there, I could only find a recipe in which you make your own cookies that would fit regular sized Peppermint Patties. These were so cute and SO easy to put together. No baking involved!

Nilla Wafer cookies
sesame seeds
shredded coconut
Green food coloring
Red and yellow icing in a squirt bottle
mini Peppermint Patties

First make the "lettuce" by putting some shredded coconut into a plastic bag. Add a few drops of green food coloring, close the bag, and shake until the coconut has turned a light green.

Next make your sesame seed buns by brushing the tops of some Nilla wafers with any flavor jam -just enough to make some "glue" to hold the sesame seeds. Sprinkle on the seeds.

To assemble the burgers, take a plain Nilla wafer (not one of the ones you have seeded) and place a Peppermint Patty on it. Squirt a small amount of red icing "ketchup" and a small amount of yellow icing "mustard" on the Peppermint Patty. Sprinkle with coconut "lettuce." Top with one of your sesame seeded cookies.
