Grinch Brownies Recipe

From scratch homemade Grinch brownie recipe

Grab some frosting and heart sprinkles and you are set to turn a classic Christmas cartoon into a delicious brownie everyone will be grabbing this holiday season. Who could possibly resist these brownies anyway? Check out our ingredients and instructions for our Grinch Brownies below. Happy Holidays! 

Ways to Personalize These Brownies


If you aren’t able to track down red heart sprinkles you can grab some gel icing pens and get crafty and draw your own little heart on, remember the illustration style of the Grinch! You don’t need to draw a perfect heart after all. Various sizes of hearts work as well since we all know the grinch’s heart grew three sizes on Christmas. 

Make the Perfect Grinch Themed Christmas Party!


If you are planning to have a large gathering and need to make more than one batch of delicious brownies, consider making one grinch themed and one Whoville themed! How would you go about doing that you asked? It’s rather simple! Instead of adding green food coloring add basically any other color. When we think of Whoville we automatically think of bright blues and pinks! 

 

Select one of these colors, or two (just mix frosting in a separate container) and place on brownie as you did for the green frosting. Instead of heart shaped sprinkles add multi color sprinkles, the crazier the better! Get some inspiration and watch the classic Grinch cartoon and see how crazy those Who’s style is! This would be super fun for kids to do since kids love getting messy and being creative. No wrong way to make these. Whichever style you go with we hope you enjoy!
