Hey party peeps! Did you guys see the Grinch movie yet? Part of our holiday tradition is watching the Grinch with the kids. This year, I came up with a few easy to make GRINCH DESSERT IDEAS including Grinch Fingers Pretzel Rods, Grinch Heart Cookies and Grinch Heart Cookie Sandwiches. We whipped these up then enjoy them as we watch the movie.
CHECK OUT THESE EASY TO MAKE GRINCH DESSERT IDEAS!
No matter how busy the holiday season gets, one thing that I always do is make time to bake sweet treats with my kids. It’s a great bonding time and we love it. But I don’t want to make everything from scratch! Mama ain’t got time for that! Sorry to all my baking friends. You all ROCK! Riley is the little baker in the house. In fact, she wants to own her own bakery when she grows up! Gotta love a little entrepreneur in the making! Want to whip up these Grinch Dessert Ideas? Let’s get started!
GRINCH DESSERT IDEAS – GRINCH HEART COOKIES!
STEP 1: Let’s start with store-bought heart-shaped sugar cookies, shall we? Then using Wilton tube green icing and the included star tip, create little peaks around the entire edge of the heart cookie.

GRINCH DESSERT IDEAS – GRINCH HEART COOKIE SANDWICHES!
GIRLFRIEND TIP: Just a heads up that the dough will need to sit in the refrigerator for a minimum of an hour, so plan ahead. I didn’t realize that when we made these, so Riley gave me the side-eye when she had to wait an hour to actually bake the cookies! Oops, MOMMY FAIL!
Now, these Grinch Heart Cookie Sandwiches are Riley’s favorites to make since it included actually BAKING! But we did start with a store-bought red velvet cake mix! YUP! Let’s get started!
WHAT YOU NEED:
– red velvet cake mix
– vanilla icing
– 1 tsp vanilla
– green food coloring
– 1 egg
– 1 stick of cooled melted butter
– red heart sprinkles
– red heart candy pieces
– wax paper
– cling wrap
STEP 5: Place the dough on a piece of wax paper and roll it to form a log about 11 inches long. Wrap the log in the wax paper and cover it fully with cling wrap. Place in the fridge for at least one hour.
STEP 6: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the log from the fridge and unwrap the dough and place it on a piece of wax paper. Cut the dough into 1 inch pieces and place on baking sheets in pairs. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on the pan for about 5 minutes. Then move them to a wire rack to cool off fully.
STEP 8: Once the cookies have fully cooled, place some green icing in the middle of one of the cookies. Then top it with another cookie and squeeze gently until the icing reaches the edges of the cookie.
