It's an appetizer... no it's a hamburger slider... and a chicken slider... no it's a DELICIOUS sugar cookie, dipped in chocolate and topped with coconut. Your friends and family will love this "burger" and be in for quite the surprise when they realize it's actually a cookie.
Step 1: Ingredients
What you'll need:
3 cups flour
2 1/4 sticks of salted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract (plus some for frosting)
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
semi-sweet chocolate chips
Step 2: Baking Sugar Cookies
Mix the egg, vanilla extract, melted butter and sugar together in one bowl. Then, slowly add that to another bowl with the flour. Blend until dough is formed. Split dough in half, to one half at 1 1/2 tsp of baking soda, and to the other add 1/2 tsp baking soda, mix well.
To form the top bun, use the dough with more baking soda so it will rise better. Roll dough into balls, and then put some sesame seeds on top of it.
For the bottom bun roll into a ball, and then flatten a little bit.
For the burger or chicken patty, form as you would a normal burger patty.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes.
Step 3: Prepare for Assembly
For burger patty:
Melt 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave on high for 1 minute, stir until melted. Then, "paint" the patty with the melted chocolate. (For chicken sliders skip this part)
Dye some fondant yellow, until it achieves the proper "kraft singles" color. Roll it out to cheesy thinness, cut into squares!
Take some shredded coconut and put into a bowl, add a few drops of green and yellow food coloring. Stir and add dye until the desired lettuce color is achieved.
Roll out some fondant, dye it green. Form into a pickle shape, then roll the edges into a bowl of green food coloring, so you can achieve a more pickle-like appearance with darker edges. Then using a toothpick make the ridges, add a few sesame seeds in the center for seeds, and walla! A perfect pickle.
For Frosting (ketchup and mustard):
To make the frosting mix 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 cup of powdered sugar and then add 2tsp of milk, or until desired consistency achieved. Split frosting into two bowls, dye one red for ketchup and the other yellow for mustard.
Step 4: Assemble Your Masterpiece!
Build your burger slider, or your chicken slider any way you would like! Put them out for all to see, watch peoples' reactions, and enjoy!
