This Grinch hot chocolate is the perfect combination of creamy, smooth hot chocolate and Grinch fun. Kids will love it!
I’ve always been a huge fan of the Grinch movies, so a Grinch drink is a natural!
Watching the original Grinch cartoon is one of our very favorite memories of Christmas as a kid, and I watch it every year with my own little ones.
This green hot chocolate is a perfect nod to all things Grinch and green. In fact, it’s the perfect Grinch drink for kids!
Grinch Hot Chocolate
I’m such a big fan of this Grinch hot chocolate.
It’s creamy, hot, tasty, and it reminds me of my very favorite holiday movie.
What you’ll need (I’ve included links to Amazon so you can see what I used):
- 4 cups of milk of your choice
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I used Wilton clear imitation vanilla extract, but regular brown vanilla extract is fine too).
- 8 oz. mint chocolate chips (available on Amazon here)
- 2 drops of green food coloring (available on Amazon)
- red sprinkles (we used Wilton Red Sprinkles)
- whipped cream
