Grinch Rice Krispie Treats Pops
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 original 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.
