1/2 cup vanilla frosting
Red and green liquid or paste food coloring
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
80 vanilla wafers (about 12 ounces)
40 chocolate-coated mint cookies (about 12 ounces)
Divide frosting into two bowls; add red food coloring to one bowl. Place coconut in a resealable plastic bag; add green food coloring and shake to coat.
Frost the bottoms of 40 vanilla wafers with white frosting; set aside. Frost the bottoms of remaining wafers with red frosting. Sprinkle coconut over red frosting; top with a chocolate cookie. Place white-frosted wafers, frosting side down, on top of cookies. Squeeze wafers together, forming sandwich cookies, and invert. Makes 40 cookies.
