Sweet Miniature Sliders

Sweet Miniature Sliders (Adapted from Nestle)

12 ounce box vanilla wafer cookies, divided
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 ounces (about 3/4 cup) bittersweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 teaspoon water
3 drops green food coloring
Red and yellow decorating gels
1 teaspoon melted butter
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Empty vanilla wafers onto a plate and reserve 48 of the best looking pieces.

Add remaining wafers to a large zip-loc bag and crushed with a heavy rolling pin. Place crumbs, confectioners' sugar and salt in a medium bowl.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, heat together chocolate and milk on medium power, stopping every 30 seconds or so, until you can stir the mixture smooth. Pour chocolate into the wafer crumb mixture and stir until well combined. Set aside and let cool for 10 minutes.

Roll mixture into 24 1" balls and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper - flatten each slightly to form patties.

In a small zip-loc bag, add coconut, water and green food coloring - seal well and shake bag to tint coconut.

Assemble burgers by placing 24 of the best looking wafers, rounded side down, onto your work surface. Top each with 1 chocolate patty. Sprinkle each patty with about 1 teaspoon colored coconut. Drizzle red and yellow gels on top to mimic ketchup and mustard. Top with remaining wafers. Brush tops of wafers with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Makes 24.
