This Grinch Cookies Recipe starts with a boxed cake mix. They’re simple to make and deliciously hard to resist. Bright green crinkle cookies with a heart two sizes too small. Perfect for kids of all ages.

The Grinch. Cuddly as a cactus. . .charming as an eel whose heart was two sizes too small. The story is a Dr. Seuss classic and these fun cookies are a great time to get the kids in the kitchen. So . . . is cooking or baking with kids: 

  1. Fun!
  2. Somewhat messy.
  3. A confidence booster.
  4. A useful life skill.
  5. All of the above.

I’d say 5, but the biggest bonus ~ other than getting to eat the cookies is that spending time with the little ones in your life leaves your heart full.
