Christmas time means re-discovering some of our favorite characters, both literary and from the big screen. See how we are adding a little Grinch-mas to our hot cocoa!

Grinch Hot Cocoa

With all of the typical symbols of Christmas, from the tree to the nativity to the twinkling lights, there is one iconic figure who I always think of when I see a red heart. He’s green, he’s grumpy, and the poor guy has a disproportionately tiny heart.  I’m talking about THE GRINCH, of course! It won’t take you more than a simple Pinterest search to find all sorts of great Grinch-inspired treats and crafts and drinks for your holiday gatherings. I wanted to share the simplest of ideas that you can use to add a little bit of Grinch to your hot cocoa bar this Christmas!

This morning I treated the kids to some hot cocoa (a rare school morning occurrence for SURE).  I topped their hot cocoa with whipped cream and then… thinking about that stinky old Grinch and his too-small heart, I added a bunch of little red candy hearts to the top of each mug!  Totally cute!

This is a great example of how sometimes, it only takes the smallest effort to leave an impact. The kids loved their “Grinch” hot chocolate, which was no more than a packet of store brand drink mix, whipped cream, and some candy hearts. But they thought it was great and so we’ll chalk it up to a win!

If you are a teacher, this one make a great tie-in after reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss. You could make some slow cooker hot chocolate and top it with “Grinch hearts.”
