"We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup."
Buddy was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa's elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs, a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.
Maple Bombs, Elf Beer, Naughty Spaghetti, and Cotton-Headed Ninny-Muggins
Maple Bombs: One of Buddy's favorite thing in the world was Maple Syrup. There are several scenes when he whips out a tiny bottle of it from his sleeve and pours it on almost everything he eats! It was a challenge to find a recipe that wasn't a desert that included maple syrup but I did find one and I can't believe I didn't think of it myself, I love brussel sprouts! Check out Snapguide.com for the recipe, it's so easy!
Elf Beer: During a dinner scene Buddy guzzles down a whole 2-liter of Coca-Cola! Add a candy can, some maraschino cherries, and a red vine to use as a straw for a super sweet concoction of what I'm calling Elf Beer. Top it off with some whip cream to really sugar it up!
Naughty Spaghetti: Buddy finds out that his biological father is on Santa's naughty list and the first time he sits down to have dinner with his new family they have Spaghetti. There is also another spaghetti scene where he mixes almost every sweet thing he can find in the kitchen and actually eats it! it's hilarious!
Cotton-Headed Ninny-Muggins: Buddy and his brother have a snow ball fight with some kids in the park which is why I thought having some actual Snowballs on the menu only made sense. I added an elf hat made out of rice krispies, green food coloring, cherry and pineapple fruit roll ups.
Q&A with the kids
1. How would you spread Christmas cheer?
2. Would you rather be an elf in a human world or a human in an elf world?
3. What kind of job would you have if you were in elf?
