The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is one of my favorite Christmas movies. Though I really love all the classics (e.g. Rudolph, Frosty, and Santa Claus is Coming to Town).

In fact, it was these Pretzel Rudolph Noses that inspired this recipe for Grinch Snacks. I absolutely love the combination of crunchy, salty pretzels with chocolate. Plus, the kids love helping to make these treats!

Of course, a Rudolph nose is easy since you just need a red, round piece of candy (thank you holiday M&M’s!). With the help of candy hearts and a black food marker though, it’s just as easy to adapt these pretzel snacks for the Grinch.

These Grinch snacks turn out really cute and they are a cinch to make. Unlike these Rolo Pretzel Turkeys, these pretzel treats don’t need to be baked at all!

How to Make Grinch Snacks

These Grinch snacks are easy as 1-2-3! The trickiest part is making the Grinch’s face. But trust me, if you can draw a stick figure, you can manage this artwork!

What You’ll Need

Twist Mini Pretzels, Green Chocolate Candy Melts, Candy Sunflower Seeds, Candy confetti Hearts, Black Food Writer Marker in containers on a white table

Step 1: Draw the Grinch Faces

The first step is the hardest since this is where we have to draw. Draw a Grinch face on the green candy melts. On the yellow candy sunflower seeds make small black ovals for the eyes.

Step 2: Prepare Pretzels

Next, melt some of the candy melts and add the melted chocolate to a sandwich bag. Snip off a corner of the bag to create a piping bag.

Pipe small dots of chocolate on the pretzels.

Step 3: Assemble the Snacks

Pace Grinch faces and plain candy melts on top of the dots of frosting on the pretzels.

On the Plain candy melts, place a dot of chocolate and stick on the candy hearts. On the Grinch faces, place 2 dots of chocolate and place on the eyes.

Give the chocolate time to set before storing or serving.
