It’s summertime, and I’m sure you’re planning on attending at least one cookout or BBQ this season. If you need something to really wow your friends, these dessert burgers will do it!
Just a few simple supplies and some assembly, and you can make these adorable (and super tasty) dessert burgers and sugar cookie fries.
Last August, my mom hosted an end-of-summer cookout, and she surprised us with these dessert burgers and fries. We all loved them!
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)
Frilly toothpicks (optional but useful!)
Dessert Burger Instructions:
- 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)
- 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)
- Squeeze or spread colored frosting on top of the chocolate cupcake to represent condiments. (pic 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)
The burgers on their own are pretty cute, but they are irresistible when paired with dessert “fries!” Click next to see how we made the fries, plus a bonus dessert!
