Granted, the last time I watched it hasn't been for many years either, but I do remember adoring it. I particularly enjoyed the soft, almost rose-y look that each scene had, if that makes any sense. It was like the entire movie had a magical, glowing filter to it.
Anyway, when I saw these super cute Grinch sugar cookies floating around on Pinterest, I fell in love with them. The simplicity of their design meant that I could actually make them, and I love that they say so much by doing so little. Everyone can look at them and instantly know what movie - and, even more specifically, what scene - they are referencing, and I love that.
I knew I had to make them, but I've already made sugar cookies quite a few times and wanted to try making brownies again since I enjoyed them so much the first time, so that's what I did! I tried out this recipe for chocolate brownies and they were ah-ma-zing.
I decided to make buttercream for my icing as it is easily one of the most delicious things in the world, but I didn't have any red heart sprinkles, so I dyed some white ones with red food dye! I'm super happy with how they turned out. I made sure to let them dry for quite a while before pushing them onto the buttercream icing as I was worried the red dye might bleed into the buttercream. I am so glad it didn't!
When it comes to Christmas movies, I think it's safe to say that How The Grinch Stole Christmas is pretty much a classic - and one that I actually like, too! You'll see what I mean when I post my other Christmas movie reviews. I also really like the Santa Claus trilogy; they're some of the very few movies I actually own on DVD. What are some of your favourite Christmas movies?
Until next time,
