Santa's Favorite Treats
Page 1 of 2

It's that time of year again, and Santa and his elves are gearing up for their big night. Just about now, he's making a second pass over his list, checking to see who's been naughty or nice.

If you want to take a behind-the-scenes look as Santa prepares, stop by the Official Web Site of Saint Nick. In addition to information about Santa, you'll find a number of other fun things to do. For instance, there are games such as Santa trivia and a Santa puzzle as well as crafts like cinnamon ornaments and projects for leftover wrapping paper.

You can also take a glimpse of how other children around the world prepare for Christmas plus sing along with some popular holiday songs. And if you have any last minute requests for Saint Nick, you can email him directly. Of course, the site wouldn't be complete without tips on Santa's favorite foods from Mrs. Claus. Learn how to make confections such as candy cane cookies, peanut brittle and a yule log.

Speaking of Santa's favorite treats, I talked with a few of our young members to see what goodies they leave for him. Chelsea (11) and her four brothers put out a plate of Christmas cookies, plus they leave celery or carrots for the reindeer. Melissa (12) and her brothers have a special Santa plate which they fill with homemade cookies along with a tall glass of eggnog. And lucky Rudolph receives a carrot at their household. What treats do you leave for Santa? Stop by the Family Forum on CompuServe and share your stories with others in the "Kids Only" section.

With all the treats left out for Santa, he consumes quite a bit of food on his journey -- a whopping approximate 60,000 tons of cookies and 375 million pints of milk in fact! How does he do it? And how does he manage to deliver all those gifts in such a short amount of time anyway?

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine butter, sugars, and vanilla, beating until creamy. Blend in eggs. Gradually add the flour mixture, stirring well. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for approximately 8 minutes (until edges start to brown).
