I made these Grinch Cookies a few months ago for my daughters Dr. Seuss day party at school. They were a big hit along with a few other treats that will be in another post soon. They are really simple to make and you just need a box of cake mix and some hearts to start with.
Grinch Cookie Recipe
I originally saw these over at Katrinas Kitchen and I thought they were so cute, I wanted to make them because I knew my daughters party was coming up. I usually bake from scratch and I am sure you could use a regular sugar cookie recipe but I wanted to try this one and it is light and fluffy. Next time I would use a little more food coloring, they do lighten up a bit when they bake.
- 1 box vanilla cake mix
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- green food coloring , a few drops, start with 1 and add until preferred color is achieved. .
- Confectioners sugar for dusting
- Sprinkles or candies , large heart-shaped
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In the bowl of your mixer cream together cake mix, food coloring, oil, and eggs.
Chill the dough for 10-15 minutes.
Drop by Tablespoon into confectioners sugar and roll into balls.
Place on baking sheet and press 1 large heart candy in center.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until just set.
Let cool 2 minutes on pan before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
These cookies are just so cute, you will love them. If your school celebrates Dr. Seuss week they will be a big hit. I can’t wait to show you the Cupcake Stand I made for the party.
