Edible Elf Treats an Antics

6 Dec

Does your family have an Elf on the Shelf?

Unfortunately my not so little one is a bit to old for all the Elf antics.

It makes me just a little sad.

All my friends on Facebook have been posting the antics of their little Elf friends.

And gosh darn it I want in on the action too!!

My guy sweet talked his Nana out of this Elf when he was super small.

He usually just sits in our tree

But this year he has some ideas for my friends with elves….

I saw this book at a friends awhile back and some of the ideas seemed perfect for the Elves.

I’m sure the trip to the North pole every night makes an Elf hungry….

Waffles anyone??

This is just the end of a sugar wafer that’s been separated and topped with a tiny drop of syrup.

Maybe your Elf would rather have french fries for lunch…

mmmmm ketchup!

All you need is a few shoe string potatoes.

Snip a tiny corner from a ketchup packet so the ketchup comes out in a very small stream.

Maybe you have more of a dessert loving Elf!!

Chocolate Cake! My favorite!!!

If your Elf decided to make a chocolate cake all he’ll need is a couple of Oreos and some frosting.

Maybe few holly berry sprinkles.

Just stick the cookies together with a bit of frosting.

Pop ‘em in the fridge to let the frosting set up between the “layers” and then frost.

Not into smooth frosting, maybe a more rustic cake is in order.

To achieve the more rustic look just pat the cake with the end of a knife or spatula to make the frosting spike.

Maybe your Elf’s trip to and from the North pole took a little longer than expected.

A late night snack of donuts might be in order.

Will he get caught making them?

Or just enjoying them…

*Donuts are just cheerios dipped in chocolate with sprinkles or tossed in powdered sugar or cinnamon.

Maybe you’re family has more than one child so you’re lucky enough to have more than one Elf.

If you have more than one Elf…

I think you’re Elves need to have a party! (or play tug of war)

Then they could enjoy just a little bit of everything!

Do you know of any other mini foods an Elf might enjoy?

If so leave me a comment letting me know.

Also, I’d love to know what you’re elves have been doing.

Feel free to share the antics!

 

UPDATE**

So after posting this yesterday a friend shared 5 Highly Inappropriate & Traumatizing  Elf on a Shelf Ideas!  It completely cracked me up!  Nothing like finding the humor in the joys of parenting.
