Gluten Free Burger Slider Cookies

Gluten Free Burger Slider Cookies Recipe

In the September/October issue of Gluten Free & More Magazine we featured a fun twist on a Halloween party – Trick or Treat? What’s the twist? It was an appetizer and dessert party with tricky treats masquerading as appetizers and appetizers dressed up as desserts. This gluten free burger slider cookies recipe was hands down my favorite! These cute little cookies look like mini burgers complete with “lettuce,” “ketchup,” and “mustard.” Both the “patties” and the “buns” start with gluten free vanilla wafer cookies from Kinnikinnick.

This recipe is such fun, and surprisingly simple, you don’t have to wait for Halloween to make them.

Author: Gluten Free & More


  • 2 (6.3-ounce) boxes Kinnikinnick gluten-free vanilla wafers
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips or dairy-free chocolate chips
  • cup milk or dairy-free milk of choice
  • ½ cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • ½ teaspoon water
  • 3 drops green food coloring
  • White decorating icing
  • Yellow food coloring
  • 2 teaspoons melted butter or dairy-free butter substitute
  • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
  • Red decorating icing


  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • Save 48 vanilla wafers for the buns. Place the rest in a plastic food storage bag and crush with a rolling pin until finely ground. Place in a mixing bowl with the sugar and salt, and stir to combine.
  • Combine the chocolate chips and milk in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high power for 45 seconds. Stir until smooth. Pour into the ground cookie mixture, stir until combined, and let cool 10 minutes. Roll the mixture into 24 (1-inch) balls, about 1 tablespoon per ball. Place on the wax paper-lined baking sheet. Flatten slightly to form into patties.
  • Combine the coconut, water, and green food coloring in a small plastic food storage bag and shake well to color the coconut.
  • Mix a few tablespoons of the white decorating icing with a few drops of yellow food coloring and mix until it looks like mustard. Place in a small plastic bag and snip off the tip.
  • Brush the rounded sides of 24 of the cookies with the melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • To assemble, place the 24 cookies without the sesame seeds on a serving platter, rounded side down. Top each cookie with one of the burger patties. Squeeze on a little of the yellow and red decorating icings to look like mustard and ketchup. Add a little green coconut on top and place the sesame seed cookies on top.
  • Can be made a day ahead and stored, covered with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator.


This recipe is adapted from Very Best Baking by Nestlè®. There are approximately 40 cookies in each box of gluten-free vanilla wafers.
