How to Make the Grinch Brownies Recipe

Servings:  9 servings

Prep: 10 minutes| Cook Time: 30 hours | Total Time: 40 minutes 


  • 1 package brownie mix
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ can of vanilla or white frosting
  • Green food coloring (I used drops, but you can use food coloring gel)
  • Red heart sprinkles


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 x 9 square pan and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the brownie mix, water, egg, and oil.

Pour brownie mixture into a baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.

Let brownies cool to room temperature.

Heat frosting in the microwave for 30 seconds. Mix in 5-10 drops of green food coloring and stir until the frosting has turned a light shade of green.

Pour green frosting over the top of cooled brownies. Let sit to harden for at least 15 minutes.

Cut the brownies into 9 squares. Add 1 red heart sprinkle to each grinch brownie in the corner.
