Troeg's website is wonderful in that it gives you everything you need to craft a clone...
Alcohol by Volume: 7.5%
Hop Bitterness (IBU's): 93ish
Color (SRM): Straw/ Orange
Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Munich
Hops: Nugget, Warrior, Tomahawk, Simcoe, Palisade
HopBack Hops: Whole leaf Nugget
Dry Hops: Nugget, Warrior
So there you go... I'd use BeerTools and plug in my malts until I get a close color match and ABV. I'd plug in the hops as well until I get my IBU. For this, I'd use something like S-04 because I love it... Troeg's is very homebrew friendly... I wouldn't even hesitate to email them questions... I've talked homebrewing with many of the employees.

EDIT: Here you go!
Troeg's Mad Elf Clone:
15 lbs. Belgian Pils
1 lbs. German Light Munich
.125 lbs. Belgian Chocolate Malt
3 lbs. Honey
.5 oz. Saaz (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 60 min.
.25 oz. Saaz (Pellets, 5.00 %AA) boiled 30 min.
.5 oz. Hallertau (Whole, 4.50 %AA) boiled 10 min.
White Labs WLP570 Belgian Golden Ale
Add 5 lbs of Bing cherries to 2ndary.
To convert to extract, I'd convert the 16 lbs of pils/munich to the equivalent of light dme, and steep the chocolate.
