RECIPE INGREDIENTS:

Hamburger Cupcakes
2 vanilla wafer cookies
1 Keebler Grasshopper cookie
Yellow and red icing in tubes
Green tinted coconut
Slices of green gumdrop (optional)
Orange juice or lemonade concentrate
Sesame seeds
1 baked cupcake
White icing
Multicolored nonpareils
Hot Dog Cupcakes
1 circus peanut
1 caramel square
Yellow icing in a tube
Green tinted coconut
Cut-up green gumdrop (optional)
Orange juice or lemonade concentrate
1 baked cupcake
White icing

1. For Hamburger: To build the hamburger, start with an upside-down vanilla wafer. Add a dab of icing to attach the Grasshopper cookie, then a squirt of yellow icing, a squirt of red icing, a sprinkle of tinted coconut, and 2 thin slices of a green gumdrop for pickles (optional).
2. Top with the second vanilla wafer cookie, right side up (glue on with icing if needed). Rub the top “bun” with juice concentrate, then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Frost the cupcake with white icing, place the “burger” on top, and sprinkle on nonpareils.
3. For Hotdog: For the bun, cut a wedge in the circus peanut. If the caramel is soft, roll it into a hot dog shape. If it’s hard, first soften it in your hand or in a microwave for a few seconds.
4. Caution: the caramel can get hot! Place the “hot dog” in the bun and squirt on a squiggly line of yellow icing.
5. Garnish with green gumdrop “relish,” if you wish. Frost the cupcake with white icing, place the hot dog on top, and sprinkle on nonpareils.
