Grinch Rice Krispie Treats

 

Who doesn’t love Dr. Seuss’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”?

I mean who in Whoville doesn’t love to see a cold heart swell full of love on Christmas day?

If you have been living under a rock and don’t know why the Grinch is so loved at Christmastime then let me tell you why –

“The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” is an adored holiday classic about a grouchy Grinch with a heart two sizes too small who is taught all about love by Whos of Whoville.

Not only do my kids enjoy reading the book over the holiday season, but the movie is always on our watch list sometime in December.

For my family, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without reading and watching the Grinch’s heart grow and go from grouchy to loveable. 

Part of our Christmas bucket list is to watch many of our favorite Christmas movies throughout the holiday season. 

So making heart-shaped Grinch Rice Krispie treats with my kids is the perfect Christmas tradition for our Grinch movie night.
