(Scroll down for some Grinch-y treats!)
My kids cannot wait! We just love musicals and have never seen this one. I hear there’s activities to do before the show as well, so we’ll be getting there early for all the fun.
Max the Dog narrates the story as the Grinch decides to steal Christmas away from the Holiday loving Whos. You’ll see the two hit songs “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas” from the original animated series.
There’s magnificent sets and costumes that are inspired by Dr. Seuss’ original illustrations to transport you to the whimsical world of Whoville. It’s a timeless story of the true meaning of Christmas.
Check out the highlights:
We are thrilled to be seeing the show in a couple of weeks. My 7 yr old and I decided to make Grinch Twinkies. I found bright red peppermint Twinkies at the store a few days ago and just knew they needed to be turned into Grinch Twinkies.
You know how at the end of the show the Grinch’s heart finally grows bigger? I was picturing the Twinkie as his heart at full size under the green chocolate.
These Peppermint Twinkies are pretty tasty. The mint is not overpowering at all.
First you’ll need to freeze the Twinkies for about 10-15 minutes.
While they’re freezing, lay a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet. Then, melt about 24 ounces of green candy melts in a bowl wide enough to hold a Twinkie. You’ll want it deep enough to hold that much melted chocolate.
Then, microwave the candy melts in 30 seconds increments and stirring each time. Do this until the candy is completely smooth and melted. It took me about 2 minutes total. Do it slowly this way otherwise the candy melts will end up gloppy and not smooth.
I took the Twinkies out of the freezer two a time to keep them cold.
Place a Twinkie in the middle of the bowl and gently cover it with the green chocolate using a spoon. When the Twinkie is completely covered, gently lifted up with a fork very carefully. Gently shake the excess chocolate off then set it on the wax paper.. Do this with all the Twinkies.
Once you finish the last Twinkie put the cookie sheet into the freezer for about 10 minutes to harden the chocolate.
Then make the little red hearts out of icing. I used glitter gel icing and just made two little diagonal ovals connected to make a heart.
Then it’s time to serve. Enjoy!
This came to me like when the Grinch’s heart finally grows bigger. When you bite into a Grinch Twinkie, you can see the red Twinkie fills the entire green chocolate.
I hope you enjoyo these Grinch-y Twinkies as much as we do and don’t forget to get your tickets for Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical! Get them HERE!
