Barbecue cookies, Memorial Day treats

I'm a stealer.  Yep, found these on a close acquaintance's blog (that would be one of my sisters). 
I really love novel foods.  This is one of them.  
I think we are going to make these for a barbecue - Memorial Day possibly? 
Simple, quick, novel...right up my alley. 
Thanks Ames.  I know...thou shalt not steal.  But then, how could I resist? 

What you need:

Vanilla Wafers
Grasshopper cookies

What to do:

  • Scoop out frosting into three bowls.  Leave one bowl white and add red food coloring to one, and yellow food coloring to the other.
  • Take a vanilla wafer and spread white frosting on the bottom.  Make it sloppy.  You want the white to spill over the edge a bit.
  • Put one of the grasshopper cookies on top of the white frosting.
  • Spread yellow frosting on half the grasshopper cookie.
  • Spread red frosting on the other half of the cookie.  Remember, you want it to be sloppy and spill over the edges.
  • Put your shredded coconut in a bag with green food coloring and mix it all around to coat evenly.
  • Sprinkle some of the coconut on top of the red and yellow frosting. 
  • Put another vanilla wafer on top of the whole ensemble. 
  • Eat.
  • Repeat.

  1. Yay! Now I feel all famous and stuff! Did you make them? Did you like them? You are welcome to steal any pictures/recipes you like. I am easy that way. And heaven knows, I get all of the family recipes (aka Grandma's) from you anyway, so I think that makes us even. :)
