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 Task Tuesday

It’s that Time Again

[Terrific Task Tuesday]

Hello folks!

It’s that time again, when there’s magic in the air and excitement wherever you look… No, I’m not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about Terrific Task Tuesdays!

For those of you who don’t know me already, I’m Toomer – a hard-working North Polish elf. Ice to meet you!

Even if you’ve never met me, you’ll have probably heard of my boss… Red cloak? Beard? He goes by the name of Santa Claus and he deals in gifts for children who’ve been good. It’s my job to spot those children doing their Terrific Tasks! Or at least it was until last week, when Santa called me into his office to discuss ‘The List’. I wasn’t too well.

“Ho ho ho, Toomer!” Santa chuckled. “How are you?”

“I’m afraid I’m not feeling too ‘elfy, boss,” I croaked.

“Sore throat?” asked Santa.

[by Toomer Elf] “I’ve had tinselitis,” I wheezed. “But I should be better by next Tuesday.”

“Glad to hear it, Toomer,” he smiled. “Because I want your Terrific Task Tuesdays to be better than ever this year. I want you to do something different. Children are often good because they’ve been told to behave or perhaps because they’ve been promised something in return. This year, I want you to get me a special list of children who have done terrific tasks without being asked.”

“You mean those children who see a need for the deed and just do it?”

“Exactly,” chuckled Santa. “Those children have got something unique… I like to call it the Xtra Good Factor. And, this year, I want you to look for the Xtra Good Factor in children.”

So, there you have it. Toomer is back in business. Every Tuesday between now and Christmas I’ll be reporting back on all those children I’ve noticed with the Xtra Good Factor… Santa will be getting a copy of the list I make and we all know what that means! In the meantime, make sure you’re doing all you can to help others without being asked.

Oh, and my tinselitis has gone now, thanks for asking… Which means I can sing Elfis songs as loud as I can…

‘til Terrific Task Tuesday Two,
