BBQ Treats

burgers 2I am really looking forward to the first long weekend of the summer season.  I know that summer doesn’t technically start until June 21 but we are kicking it off NOW.  If you are heading to a BBQ this weekend, or hosting a BBQ what are you serving for dessert?  How about burgers?

TIPS: I used a boxed cake mix for these beauties.  Using a silicone cupcake tray means that there are no paper wrappers to remove.

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate cake mix
  • Vanilla cake mix
  • Oil – as per box mix directions
  • Eggs- as per box mix directions
  • Milk/water – as per box mix directions
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • Green food colouring
  • Yellow & Red tube frosting
  • Optional decorative sticks
  • cupcake wrappers

Step 1. Prepare batter & bake cupcakes, if the goal is 12 cupcakes burgers you need 3-6 chocolate and 12 vanilla.

Step 2.  While the vanilla are still hot roll the top of the cupcake in a plate of sesame seeds

Step 3.  Let cool

Step 4. Cut the vanilla into 2 pieces, and chocolate into 2-3 pieces depending on the size

Step 5.  Mix 1/2 a cup of coconut with green food dye to make relish

Step 6.  Using prepackaged tubes of frosting for the ketchup & mustard, or a piping bag and coloured frosting, stick the coconut relish to the top of the bottom bun with either ketchup or mustard.  You could also use white frosting if you like mayo on your burger.  Drizzle a little ketchup or mustard on the edges for fun.  Put the burger on the bottom bun.

Step 7.  Using the alternate condiment put the top of the burger on the bun, again drizzling a little on the edges.    Stick a decorative stick in the top if you wish.  ENJOY.

Have a great weekend!
