Grinch, Please


Not nasty wasty or full of gunk- even though they look a tid bit scary- these Grinch inspired cookies are a fun + festive treat that are easy enough to make with even the littlest of seasick crocodiles. Fluffy cake cookies topped with red sprinkles- or crushed peppermint, or red heart candies- are a yummy holiday alternative to a three-decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich... With arsenic sauce!

But really, they are delicious + super easy to make. Turn on the classic movie {retro cartoon preferred} and bake away. 

Happy {and tasty} holidays!
