Who doesn’t have fond childhood memories of eating Mini Burger Cookies at school? If you don’t, or if you just want to pass on the joy to your little, we’ve secured the easiest and most authentic recipe that definitely pays homage to ’80s and ’90s kids everywhere. We remember feeling super excited when anyone brought these into a classroom, and these yummy and fun to look at little treats will give your kiddos major bonus points at school. We usually prefer to make these with Girl Scout Thin Mints, but they aren’t always in season (whhhhhy?!?!) so we’ve found that Keebler Grasshopper Cookies are an excellent replacement.
