We needed to create some easy ideas to include with our Christmas trays this year for the kids & came up with Grinch Cookies! We used key lime cookie mix from Pillsbury & decorated with pre-made icing, Tootsie Rolls, and sprinkles!

Grinch Cookies


  • 1 box of Key Lime Cookie Mix (Pillsbury)
  • Chocolate Cookie Icing (Betty Crocker)
  • Lemon Tootsie Rolls
  • Red Sprinkles or Pearl Candies
  • Green Twizzler Strings


  1. Make your cookies according to the package directions. You can also make any sugar cookie and add green food coloring as well.
  2. We used the chocolate icing to make the mouth, nose, and eye brows.
  3. We put a lemon Tootsie Roll in the microwave for 7 seconds.
  4. Pinch off 5 pieces and then split those pieces in half to make 10.
  5. Shape them into eyes using your fingers before they harden back up.
  6. Attach on for eyes using the icing.
  7. We used red Pearl candies for the pupils.
  8. Cut cut off pieces from a green Twizzler string & then cut the top into 3 pieces using kitchen scissors.
  9. Attach on the back side using the icing.

That’s it…SO easy! Here is a close up…
