Crinkle Cookies

These fun and easy Grinch Crinkle Cookies are such a crowd pleaser! I am sure you have had the traditional chocolate ones and know how easy they are to make. These are just as simple and even easier using a cake mix.

The cake mix batter will be very thick, this is a good thing as you do NOT want to touch it with your hands when I has that much food coloring in it!

If you have a cookie scoop, I used my .5 T scoop, you can use that to keep it off your hands. Or use 2 tablespoons to roll them into balls. This is the hardest part of the entire process and it isn’t really hard at all!  Crinkle Cookies steps

    Thank you for putting this on the internet. You explain everything very clearly and show pictures. Good job, I’m following your directions to make the crinkle cookies for our whoville celebration at church this Sunday for family fun night:) thanks! 5 star in my book, but for some reason it wouldn’t let me shade all 5 stars.
