Last year, in an effort to do something fun and special for Father’s Day, my little pranksters decided to try to trick their dad into thinking these adorable sweets were real burgers and fries. They enjoyed making them so much that just the other day, my daughter was describing them in detail to a friend, a full year after the fact!
I decided to share these with you, so that you can make these adorable, tasty, and relatively simple treats that are sure to leave a lasting impression at any cookout you attend!

Step 5 Assembling:
