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.

The Other Pole, Antarctic Christmas

Lands at the South Pole

[The Other Pole, Antarctic Christmas]

Hi kids, it’ Franny back for another week of Franny Fridays!!!! Did you miss me? I missed you. I even missed where I wanted to land my sleigh this week and I landed in the South Pole by mistake! I was supposed to visit some boys and girls in Peru, but last week I asked Gizmo Elf to add some extra power to my sleigh to help search for Santa. Well Gizmo added too much power and I couldn’t stop in time! Next thing I know, I’m over Antarctica, which is also called the South Pole. Oh Boy, what a mistake!

Well, I might as well stop and see if there is anyone who celebrates Christmas in Antarctica. First, did you know that almost all of Antarctica is covered by ice and it’s surrounded by five oceans! No one lives here all year round, but many scientists and explorers from different countries visit throughout the year. The scientists do experiments on everything from how to stop global warming and see how penguins and seals live. Antarctica is also the coldest place on earth. BRRRRRR! I don’t want to stay for long.

[by Franny Elf] Do the scientists and explorers celebrate Christmas? You bet they do. It’s summer here in December, but there is still a lot of snow and ice, it certainly feels like winter. The scientists take part of the day off and have a great Christmas meal and party. Unfortunately there’s no place to buy Christmas decorations. Many people will dress up in good clothes or costumes, and many people will sing, dance and play instrument to make it feel like they are home. Many people also call home to their families in other countries. That sounds like fun!

Hopefully now that I’ve found out how Christmas is celebrated in the South Pole, I can find someone who can fix my sleigh, or I may not make it back to the North Pole this year. Oh no! Join me here at the North Pole Times next week to see if I can get my sleigh flying again! Bye!
