We’re going all things Grinch this Christmas as we sit and read How The Grinch Stole Christmas and watch the movies and cartoons. My kids love the Grinch and we have had a lot of fun creating Grinch Crafts, Activities and Recipes in the past. This time we have a very simple Grinch Cookie that the kids can decorate and it’s quick to make.
Whilst I was over in the USA I discovered Nutter Butters for the first time and loved them. I bought back a box for the kids and they discovered them too! I love how easy they are to use to create some fun quick and easy decorated cookies and they lend themselves perfectly for these Grinch themed treats for kids to make.
Now I haven’t found them in our local supermarket but I have found them online so you can make them in the UK too. If not I think that these would be great made with some of our favourite sandwich biscuits just adapt the decorating.
