Step 1: Start by making some lettuce for the burgers. Pour your coconut into a plastic bag with a few drops of green food coloring. Zip the bag closed and hand over to the kids to shake-shake-shake. You’re done when the coconut starts to look like iceberg or romaine. hamburger_cookies_2

 

 

Step 2: What’s a burger without ketchup and mustard? Divide the icing into two smaller plastic bags. Add several drops of red food coloring to one bag and yellow to the other. Zip the bags closed and hand over to the kids for some serious smushing action. You’re done when icing starts to look like some classic condiments. Press your ketchup and mustard icing to one corner of the bag. hamburger_cookies_3
