Mini taco cookies recipe
Yields 12 mini taco cookies
Assemble each taco topping:
Prepare the "taco shells"
To make the cookie taco shells, remove the top and bottom wafers of the Golden Oreo cookies and scrape off the filling. Using a sawing motion with a serrated knife, carefully cut each Oreo wafer just above the Oreo logo (about 2/3).
Align the cut wafers inside of a mini cupcake pan to form the angled shape of a taco shell.
Melt the peanut butter candy melts in a microwave (three, 30-second intervals, stirring between each heating) and pour into a piping bag or plastic zip-closed bag. Cut off the tip and pipe the melted peanut butter candy between the cut Oreo wafers.
Smooth out with a toothpick. Allow them to cool a few minutes. Turn the cookie taco shells over and pipe more peanut butter melt on the bottoms, smoothing the gap shut and securing the two wafers together.
Add "ground beef"
To assemble, add the chocolate ground beef first.
Pile on the toppings
Pipe a small line of white frosting down the the center and sprinkle the coconut lettuce on top. (The frosting helps keep it in place.) Add a few more dabs of white frosting and sprinkle the candy cheese on top. Add two or three dabs of white frosting to secure the candy cherry tomatoes. Add more white frosting for sour cream, if desired.
Enjoy your fiesta!
