Gluten Free Dessert Hamburgers
As you may have noticed, I don’t have the most conventional recipe this week. I mean, I made dessert hamburgers. Who does that, unless you’re Nabisco. I told one of my family members this past week that I would be making dessert hamburgers for this week’s Sunday Supper, and they told me that it was totally unoriginal. Mind you, he said this with such a calm and nonchalant demeanor that I was in shock. It’s like my brain hit a brick wall. I thought I was being fun and creative, making something new that I haven’t done before, and I just kind of assumed not many others had either. I asked him where he saw these, assuming he would say Pinterest because where else would you find stuff like dessert hamburgers. And with a plain and straight face, he said Oreos have been doing the dessert hamburger game for years.
Don’t you love it when your family wants to have fun and troll you?
But to be a little serious, I had a lot of fun coming up with this recipe, and really hope the creativity shines through. The cupcakes serve as the hamburger buns (topped off with fake sesame seeds), while the chocolate covered coconut serves as the fake hamburger patty. Top it off with a little tart raspberry jelly to balance the sweetness and act as fake ketchup, and you’ve got yourself some dessert hamburgers!
