Our recipe for the Three Sizes Too Big Heart Cookie Cake is a Paid Promotion for Illumination and Universal’s The Grinch.
When you think of The Grinch you probably don’t think of it in terms of Valentine’s Day. Well, we are here to show you just how wrong you are! We’ve created a brand new recipe for a Three Sizes Too Big Heart Cookie Cake! Not only that, but we also have a fun giveaway! We’re giving new meaning to what it means to be a Grinch!
In The Grinch, “Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch lends his voice to the infamous Grinch, who lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mt. Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Who-ville when he runs out of food.
Each year at Christmas they disrupt his tranquil solitude with their increasingly bigger, brighter and louder celebrations. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.
Meanwhile, down in Who-ville, Cindy-Lou Who—a young girl overflowing with holiday cheer—plots with her gang of friends to trap Santa Claus as he makes his Christmas Eve rounds so that she can thank him for help for her overworked single mother. As Christmas approaches, however, her good-natured scheme threatens to collide with the Grinch’s more nefarious one. Will Cindy-Lou achieve her goal of finally meeting Santa Claus? Will the Grinch succeed in silencing the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all?”
When we were asked to create a new recipe for The Grinch, we immediately went towards Christmas theming (much like our Grinch-mas Bark recipe). However, the challenge with this was that is needed to be Valentine’s Day-themed since the home release is after the holiday season. We decided to take inspiration from one of the most obvious places, the Grinch’s heart! We created a large cookie cake to give the impression that his heart grew three sizes!
We hope you enjoy our sweet Valentine’s Day recipe inspired by The Grinch! The Grinch is available now on Digital HD and Blu-ray! Just to show you we aren’t grinchy ourselves, we are giving away 5 Blu-ray copies of The Grinch over on our Instagram! Be sure to head over there and enter! The winners will be chosen next Tuesday! Good Luck!
