Grinch Cookie Idea for Christmas


You only need a few ingredients to create these fun cookies, and that’s the beauty of them! Also, the decorations lend well to just how thematic and instantly recognizable they are. Set these out and you might hear someone pipe into their own rendition of ‘Mr. Grinch’!

A few helpful tips and inspiration for making your Grinch themed Christmas cookies:

  • This would also work great with sugar cookies if you feel like making your own cookies!  
  • if you can’t find green candy melts, use white ones and add green food coloring to them. 
  • If you are having trouble tracking down candy melts, regular icing can also work as long as you don’t make it too thick.

You can also create other characters from the Grinch if you want. Simply have different candy melts and get a bunch of fun sprinkles. Creating Whoville characters! The more colors the better, make a fun day out of it! Also watch the classic Grinch cartoon or one of the movies prior to getting inspiration, or while watching. And last but not least, pair these up with a nice mug of hot chocolate.
