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.

Finding Santa Claus

Santa Spotters Swell; Spotting Space Santa!

[Finding Santa Claus]

With Santa (and Waldo) in orbit, we've brought back the Santa Spotters in order to track his path in outer space. I went to see Holly Elf, the Chief Santa Spotter, to see how this project is progressing.

As usual, she saw me long before I saw her. "We've got a lot of Santa Spotters out there, and they're doing a great job!" Holly said. She showed me a large sheet of graph paper with lots of lines, names, and numbers on it. She pointed to one point. "This was when Santa was spotted by Marissa, in Eminence, Missouri," she said, then she pointed to another spot on the paper. "And then here was when he was spotted by Michael, flying directly over Calundra, in Queensland, Australia!" Holly smiled at me. "Isn't that incredible? Do you know what this means?"

"No," I replied, "but it must be exciting! Tell me what it means!"

Holly looked a little sheepish. "I don't know what it means either. I was going to ask Gizmo about it, but he's busy building the rescue rocket. Then I thought that maybe Timbo Elf might be able to help 'cause he's always with the reindeer, so he knows about flying--but he's real busy with the reindeer games. There's really no one here to help."

"You're telling me no one at the North Pole can help us find Santa?" I asked.

[by Jiller Elf] "Yes," said Holly. Then she smiled."That's why I've gotten in touch with NORAD!"

"The North American Aerospace Defense command?" I asked.

"Yes!" said Holly. "They track Santa every year when he's delivering presents on Christmas Eve, so I figure they can help us find where Santa is right now!" She grinned. "That's the great thing about being a Santa Spotter--we can always spot a solution!"

Will NORAD be able to find Santa--with the help of Santa Spotters? Keep reading the North Pole Times to find out!
