A warm and bubbly holiday treat from back in the day. Serve with a scoop of ice cream or just by itself.

A truly old fashioned flavored cake that is a moist, tender, spice cake with applesauce, nuts and raisins. Delicious!

These little cherry flavored gems are Rudolph's favorite. Any ideas as to why?

Nothing short of heavenly. Quite sweet, but the extra tart of the cream cheese and cranberries gives just the perfect tart touch to leave you craving just one more.

This Crock Pot Candy just might be the ultimate holiday treat! Not only is it easy to make, it’s really delicious and a great treat to share for Christmas.

Here's a recipe from our very own Ali Elf. This is sure to please.

Try these cookies on the sweet-tooth in the family. Our Elves love 'em... yours will too!

Oh, bring us some figgy pudding, Oh, bring us some figgy pudding, Oh, bring us some figgy pudding, And bring it right here.

There's nothing like a nice molasses cookie and a glass of milk during the holidays.

Another festive treat from Ali Elf! You've got to try it.

Here's a fun treat that all the Elves like to make for dessert.

How about this nutty treat for your holiday party

Just a fun treat for the holidays. Perfect for snacking, gift giving, get togethers....just about any time. A sweet candy flavor with a texture like caramel corn.

You're going to love these little treats, direct from Mrs. Claus' Kitchen at the North Pole!

A quick little treat to warm your bones while watching that holiday show.

Yet another tasty treat from Ali Elf. Be careful though, you'll probably want to eat a lot of these.

TERRIFIC TASKER OF THE SEASON

Could it be You?

[TERRIFIC TASKER OF THE SEASON]

Every Christmas I end up thinking that it’s been the busiest one yet. Guess what I’m thinking today? You guessed it…

This Christmas has been the busiest one yet. No, honestly. It has!

It’s getting near to the end of a chock-a-blockful four weeks of travelling, tasting and tons of terrific tasks. I’ve seen so many good deeds from you all, that I’m overwhelmed. Yesterday, I managed to zip down to Brazil, where I saw a great little lad, Luis, cook dinner for his mom who has the ‘flu. The meatballs were luke warm and there were more lumps in his sauce than a two-day old rice pudding, but it’s the thought that counts when it comes to Terrific Tasks. Little Luis certainly has the Xtra Good Factor.

It seems that this year a lot of things are being stopped… For example, exit signs – they’re on the way out (get it?!!!) and then there’s Advent calendars – their days are numbered. Those are my two jokes out of the way for this week’s column!

On to more serious matters…

You may have read about the announcement of ‘Elf of the Season’. I’ve had a word in Santa’s rosy ear and he’s agreed to award ‘Terrific Tasker of the Season’ to the child who has been the most thoughtful, the kindest and considerate.

Could it be you? Here’s how I’m going to judge it:

- From now through midnight on Christmas Eve, my special TTT (Terrific Task Team) will be visiting you all and sending me reports on the good deeds you’ve been doing.

- When I’ve decided on the person who has been the most thoughtful (without doing it for money or reward), I’ll tell Santa.

- The winner will get then a year’s worth of pat-on-the-backs, one large ‘For Your A Jolly Good Fellow’ and a jar full of ‘I-feel-good-about-myself-ness’. As well as a special visit from Mr Claus of course.

Talking of Santa, I suppose I’d better get back to work… If I don’t see you before the 25th, let me wish you and yours a very happy Christmas, New Year and everything in between. Take a little time to be considerate and remember the meaning behind the date.
