    1. First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

    3. Thrid, add cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil to a large bowl and stir well.
    4. Fourth, add equal amounts of green and yellow food coloring to get your desired “Grinch” color. I used 4 drops of each.
    5. Next, Using a cookie scoop, drop scoops of dough onto a baking sheet, 1-2 inches apart.
    6. Then, Bake for 9 minutes. Remove from the oven, and set the baking sheet on a wire cooling rack for one minute.

    9. Add 2 drops each of green and yellow food coloring. Stir well.
    10. Check the consistency. It should be just perfect - not too runny, and not too thick.
    11. Finally, spread icing on the cookies.
    12. Lastly, place a heart in the center of the cookies.
