I made these Grinch Cookies with a big heart a few months ago for my daughters Dr. Seuss day party at school. They were a big hit with all her friends. They are really simple to make and you just need a box of cake mix and some hearts to start with.
Grinch Cookies With Heart Recipe
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. You can serve them on this cute Grinch Plate.
If you love the Grinch you will want this book,
- 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.
