Grinch Rice Krispies Treats are so adorable to make for your family, school treats or for a Christmas party. They are super easy to make and your kids will have a blast helping you in the kitchen. I started this dessert treat by mixing up a basic recipe for Rice Krispies. Next I added some green food coloring to the mix and stirred well. I then spread it out onto a baking sheet and let it cool for about 2 minutes.
I then sprayed my hands with non stick cooking spray and started molding the rice krispies into the Grinch’s head. I then pressed 2 yellow M&M’s into the each treat, where the eyes should be. The I put the frosting in a bag and piped the Grinch’ mouth, nose and eyebrows and a squiggle for the hair on top. I let them harden then placed in individual bags for my kids to take to school for their Christmas party.
The Grinch Rice Krispies Treats turned out so cute and my boys loved them! They had so much fun making them and then enjoyed eating them right away. It was a great fun afternoon in the kitchen making memories!
We hope you enjoy these cute Grinch Rice Krispies Treats as much as we do. They are perfect for a Christmas party, play date or bake sale. Also great on a night when you plan to watch The Grinch movie.
