Christmas cooking competition inspired by ‘Elf’ movie could earn a lucky winner some big bucks

A company is offering a large cash prize to the person who can create the best “Elf”-inspired dish this holiday season.

OnlineCasinos is hosting an “Elf” competition to find the most creative and festive dish inspired by the 20-year-old holiday movie.

The company is asking participants to make a Buddy the Elf-inspired dish — and capture a great photo of the meal

Then, the company asks that participants go to its website — and submit their photos for review.

OnlineCasinos said the dish could be a remake of Buddy’s iconic spaghetti with candy and maple syrup or a unique creation inspired by the festive movie.

The submission form asks minimal questions — name, age, location, contact information.

The competition began on Nov. 20.

It will close at the end of the day on Monday, Dec. 11, 2023

The winner will be announced within five days of the competition’s closing date — and one lucky participant will be awarded $2,500, or the equivalent in GBP or CAD.

Picking the winner, however, will be random — as the company will enter all applicants into a random draw. 

Competitors must be over the age of 18 and can live in the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of “Elf,” in which Will Ferrell’s character Buddy travels to New York City to find his dad and spread Christmas cheer.

The anniversary sparked many different collaborations with those looking for a reason to celebrate.

Krispy Kreme released limited-edition “Elf” inspired donuts — while Pottery Barn released a special collection of “Elf” inspired holiday décor pieces.

HelloFresh even announced a limited-time spaghetti meal kit for those looking to make Buddy’s maple syrup and chocolate spaghetti at home — as well as three recipes inspired by moments in the film.
