These Grinch Sugar Cookie Bars are the easiest dessert you could make! And so yummy too! These are so super simple but with the green frosting and heart sprinkles they scream How the Grinch Stole Christmas! If you are looking for more great Christmas treats, make these perfect cut sugar cookies, this mint oreo bark, and these gingerbread cookies.

In the shape of little squares, the Grinch Sugar Cookie Bars have the same color green as the Grinch frosting and a heart sprinkle that is 3 sizes too small.

Fun fact guys: If you have Amazon Prime there is access to tons of music (which if you have Amazon Prime, you probably already know). But what I bet you didn’t know is that you can listen to the entire soundtrack of How The Grinch Stole Christmas on there. And it’s not like you are listening to a few songs. You are listening to the entire story!

You guys probably aren’t as excited about this as I am.

Quinn and I found it *so* cool.

In the shape of little squares, the Grinch Sugar Cookie Bars have the same color green as the Grinch frosting and a heart sprinkle that is 3 sizes too small.

So the other morning at the crack of dawn, before even God was awake, but of course Quinn was, we were in the kitchen and she wanted to listen to, “The Grump.” (How cute is that?)  I was making coffee, she was eating breakfast, and she said to me, “Mom, you should really make a Grinch treat.” (Once it starts, she gets on board with him being the Grinch and not the Grump).

And then I thought of these cookie bars!

They are 100% inspired by the very talented Katrina and these cookies that she made a few years back.

I love that the symbol of the Grinch has become the green with his heart that grows so big at the end. Like we all get to focus on how he came around in the end.

Too sappy?

In the shape of little squares, the Grinch Sugar Cookie Bars have the same color green as the Grinch frosting and a heart sprinkle that is 3 sizes too small.

Anyway, these start with a sugar cookie mix, and end with my vanilla frosting and that’s it. If you want to go old school, make this sugar cookie recipe, but obviously I won’t judge you if you take this short cut. It’s kind of an amazing life saver.

Happy Grinching!

    Love this! How do you cut them after frosting them and have the edges look so crisp and clean? Also how big are the squares you cut?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I wait for the frosting to firm up a little bit and then just cut away. Make sure the bars are *completely* cool. I didn’t really pay attention to the size of the bars. About two inches by two inches?
