Peppermint extract, chocolate chips, heart sprinkles and green cookie dough combine to create…GRINCH cookies! These are sure to be a hit at any holiday gathering this year!
With two empty cookie jars, it was time to get baking! I’ve been on a peppermint kick lately so I asked Ruby if she would like to make chocolate chip cookies with me and add some peppermint flavoring. She was totally on board. One thing lead to another and we ended up adding 24 drops of green food coloring and pulled out some tiny heart sprinkles.
