Start by selecting Nilla wafers for your buns. You'll want nice ones for the top buns but can use chipped ones for the bottom buns.
Use your finger to spread a little egg wash onto the tops of your top buns. Then use another finger to press sesame seeds into the egg wash.
Next, you'll need to dye your frosting. If you want to skip this step, then you can buy cookie icing in a tube, one yellow and one red. I found it was worth saving the $4 and just coloring it myself.
The final prep before assembly is to dye your coconut. Place it in a bowl with a dab of green icing color and a couple of drops of water. Use a fork to stir until the coconut is a nice, bright green.
To assemble your hamburgers, place a little bit of frosting (either color) on the bottom of a Grasshopper cookie, and press it into one of your bottom buns.
Use a spoon to put yellow frosting on the outer edge of half of the Grasshopper cookie, then red frosting on the other half. Plan on one of the sides where the yellow and red meet being the front of your burger.
Use your fork to sprinkle some coconut onto the frosting, trying to get the coconut toward the outer edges as well.
The final step is to place your top bun on. You will want it to be positioned slightly away from the front edge of the Grasshopper burger so that you can really see all the layers.
These hamburgers will keep for a few days, but the Nilla wafers will get very soft after 24 hours in humid weather, so they're best stored in an airtight container.
Enjoy your sweet hamburger treats.
