How the Grinch Stole Christmashas been one of my favorite holiday cartoons and movies since I was a little girl. I loved the book, the original cartoon version and also love Jim Carrey's movie version. I guess I am just a Grinch loving girl at heart! My favorite quote from the book is, "Well, in Whoville they say – that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day. And then – the true meaning of Christmas came through, and the Grinch found the strength oftenGrinches, plustwo!"Hence, the green hearts with the small red heart in the center.

During the holidays, my daughter and I love to make treats like our White Chocolate Christmas Mix, White Chocolate Christmas Bark, and these Peppermint Pretzel Bite Candies. This year we decided to add a new, fun, Grinch inspired treat to share with our friends, so the Grinch Heart Rice Krispies Treats were born. They were so easy to make, are so yummy, and quite possibly the cutest treats ever!
