Ingredients

~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

Method

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.
