This is a great fun treat to make.  Usually once a year we make this for some occasion.  We had a fall party that we ended up making these for this year.  They are fun, cute, and super easy to make.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • box vanilla wafers
  • container of vanilla frosting
  • yellow, red, green food dye
  • coconut
  • mint thin type cookies–i believe they are called grasshoppers
