These Grinch Pops are made using store bought Rice Krispie treats. I am going to include the recipe for Rice Krispie treats in case you would rather make the treats yourself, or you can not find a box of Rice Krispie treats at the store.
The new Grinch movie just came out, and the girls have fallen in love with the Grinch all over again. I am still partial to the orginal Grinch cartoon, or if I am watching a live action version, the Grinch Movie with Jim Carey, because I mean, he is hysterical. We love watching Christmas movies, so we have both in our collection, and I plan on getting the new one when it comes out. For the adults watching the Grinch… try this Grinch Cocktail.
