On December 5, 6, 7…
The elves are on the loose at the North Pole!
We’re spreading the Christmas spirit with recipes, crafts, stories, and lots of giveaways!

Hi everyone. I’m Taleisin Elafir, one of Santa’s elves.

I work at the North Pole and I have the most important job for Santa. I taking care of the reindeer, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blixen and of course the king himself, Rudolph.

I make sure they play fairly while playing reindeer games. We don’t want a repeat of— well you know. The flying reindeer have such fragile egos.

While I’m working, I love to listen to Lady Antebellum, ‘Baby it’s Cold Outside.’ All the reindeer love this music too, well except Rudolph. He like the old Christmas songs sung by Frank Sinatra, so I mix them up to keep everyone happy.

I’ll be giving away a pair of beautiful hand-crafted earrings to my Secret Santa Krafty Kelly. Her job at the North Pole is wrapping presents in a creative, decorative way. But beware, because you might find tricky surprises in that wrapping…I love being crafty in a devious way, too and will be  giving away a pair of hand-crafted earrings to  one lucky person who leave a comment on this page!

I eat Christmas cookies and drink eggnog, as I feed the reindeer carrots.  Here is the recipe that Mrs. Clause makes especially for me.

Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate

Yield: 3 to 4 dozen

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 10 min

Ingredients:

6 cups sweetened shredded coconut flakes
1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

In a large bowl, stir together the coconut flakes, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until well combined.

Use a small spoon to scoop out roughly 3 Tablespoons of the mixture to form small mounds, spaced about 2 inches apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 12 to 18 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the macaroons are your desired level of crispiness.

Come and visit with my other elves.

Pinky Twinkleton, Serendipity Sparkles, Candy Cane, Twinkle Bright, Bob, Puddle, Sugarplum Silverfluff, Granny VanElfington, Goth, Sparkle, Annie, Lindy Lou, Taleisin Elafir, Krafty Kelly, Frangelica Tinselbaubles, and Kandy Kane will all be there, and we’d love for you to join us!
