Grinch Brownies

You simply cannot celebrate the holidays without some Grinch desserts and trust me, I am sort of a pro at the Grinch themed recipes.

I absolutely adore The Grinch and while there are so many delicious Grinch treats to choose from, I have to say, these Grinch Brownies land near the top of my list.

These Grinch Brownies are moist and made with cake mix for a one-of-a-kind treat.

Pair this with our Homemade Grinch Punch or Grinch Hot Cocoa and you’ll have some of the best holiday eats around!

Grinch Brownies Ingredients

PRO TIP:

Use Gel Food Coloring instead of regular food coloring. The Gel food coloring gives you a better, vibrant green color and seems to mix better with the cake mix. Regular food coloring tends to water down the cake mix and can result in a gooey consistency. I like to use the lime green or leaf green gel food coloring for my Grinch recipes.

How to Make Grinch Brownies

In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the Cake Mix, Eggs, Powdered Sugar, Oil, and Water, and mix on low speed until combined.  Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl, and mix at high speed for 1 minute.

Next, add the Lime Green Food Coloring a few drops at a time until the desired color is achieved.  Remove the mixing bowl from the stand, and gently fold in the White Chocolate Chips.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven to a wire rack to cool completely. 

While the Brownies are cooling, make the Frosting.

In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the Butter, Milk, and Vanilla, and blend at low speed until mixed.  Add the Powdered Sugar a little at a time until all is added, and well blended, smooth and creamy. 

Add a few drops of the Lime Green Food Coloring until desired color is reached. 

When the Brownies are cool, Frost with the Frosting, and sprinkle with the Red Hearts.
