These playful treats will be sure to have the adults talking and the children running wild (on sugar). I loved making these cute mini tacos. They were surprisingly easy to assemble and worth the time spent.
In a small bowl, scrape out the filling of each cookie and set aside.
Cut 1/4 of each cookie side with a serrated knife. *Use the first cut cookie as a guideline cutting the remaining cookies. This will ensure they are all the same size.
With a spoon, scoop about a teaspoon of chocolate frosting and place towards the straight edge of a cookie (where you cut 1/4 off). Take another cookie side and sandwich the frosting in between; matching the two serrated ends together with the rounded ends facing up. You should have what appears to be a taco shell with chocolate filling as your “meat”. Check out the photos for further clarification.
In two small bowls, add your divided shredded coconut and food colouring (orange in one bowl and green in another). Mix until coconut changes color.
Top chocolate frosting with the green and orange shredded coconut for your “cheese” and “lettuce”.
Take two red chocolate candies and place in the chocolate frosting, wherever desired, for your “tomatoes”
Take white sandwich filling, which was removed at the beginning, and place in a piping bag fitting with a small hole nozzle (the smallar the better). Pipe white filling on top of shredded coconut for your “sour cream”.
Serve on a platter and devour!
