Now that summer has come back around, I wanted to share with you exactly how to make them. So here we go!

Dessert Burgers and Fries

The collage below shows each of the steps for the burgers. It’s a pretty easy, straight-forward recipe! But here is the info:

Dessert Burger Ingredients:

Chocolate cupcake and vanilla cupcake mixes (or make from scratch!)
Colored frosting (we used red, green, and yellow)
Sesame seeds
Frilly toothpicks (optional but useful!)

Dessert Burger Instructions:

  1. Make chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. You’ll need one chocolate and one vanilla for each dessert burger, so a dozen of each kind will make a dozen dessert burgers. (pic 1)
  2. Slice all of the cupcakes in half, and place the bottom half of the chocolate cupcakes, upside down, on the bottom half of the vanilla cupcakes. (pics 2+3)
  3. Squeeze or spread colored frosting on top of the chocolate cupcake to represent condiments. (pic 4)
  4. Top the “burger” with the top half of the vanilla cupcake and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. Insert a frilly toothpick to keep it all together! (pic 5)
