Growing up watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas was a family tradition, that and Rudolph and A Charlie Brown Christmas. We never missed a year. The television stations only played each show once a Christmas season and there were no home movies.

As soon as we could get a copy we bought the shows so we could watch them more than once with the kids. It is just a tradition that we watch these ionic shows each year.

We are now obsessed with the new Disney Grinch movie which has all the charm of the original but more beautiful and longer. Max the dog makes this version of the movie just like he did in the 1966 original.

How to Decorate Grinch Cookie

  • The first and most important way to make a cookie Grinch is to use green food coloring to get that perfect green Grinch color.
  • Trees hearts and stars are classic Grinch movie symbols.
  • Green, red, white, lime green, and soft pink are classic Grinch colors.
  • Sprinkles of any kind will work. Even if you need to use heart sprinkles from Valentine’s decorations, the green will make the cookie. I found these sprinkles at Sprinkles Pop
