April Fool’s Day is coming soon, I bet your kids would love these Hamburger Cupcakes!  I made these last night for the Young Men at church and I guess they actually fooled at least one young man.

1 box brownie mix, plus ingredients to make brownies

1 box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to make cupcakes

red frosting, homemade or store bought

yellow frosting, homemade or store bought

shredded coconut

green food coloring

cocktail toothpicks

1  Bake brownies according to package directions in a 9 x 13″ pan lined with parchment paper.  Allow to cool completely.

2  Bake cupcakes according to package directions but do not use paper liners, spray wells of muffin pan with cooking spray instead.  Allow to cool completely.

3  Lift brownies out of pan using the edges of the parchment paper.  Using a 2 1/2″ round cookie cutter, carefully cut 15 circles out of the brownies.

4  Slice the cupcakes in half to make a top and a bottom bun.

5  Tint the coconut with the green food coloring.

6  To assemble, take a bottom bun and put a squirt of frosting in the center of it, place a brownie round on top of the frosting and press down gently.  Squirt red frosting and then yellow frosting around the edge of the brownie then sprinkle the green coconut over the top of the patty/frosting.  Place the top bun over all of this and secure with a cocktail toothpick.  Now go fool your kids!
