Get Your Buddy the Elf Spaghetti

December 6, 2018

Like an elf, if you try to stick to the four main food groups of “candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup,” you’ll love this restaurant’s take on Buddy the Elf’s famous spaghetti recipe.

The dish titled the Elf Spaghetti Sundae, exists on the menu of Miss Ricky’s Diner at the Virgin Hotel in Chicago.

The ingredients match those of Will Ferrell’s character in the Christmas movie favorite Elf, including strawberry and raspberry sauce, marshmallows, s’mores, Pop-Tarts, M&Ms, Oreos, Fruity Pebbles and coconut topped with maple syrup and chocolate sauce. The entrees main element, of course, is spaghetti.

Chef Moosah Reaume said that the special dessert is available until Christmas.

“What better way to kick off the holidays than with a dish that kids and adults can have fun with,” he wrote to GMA in a statement, adding that he and his children have seen Elf more than 10 times. “Now we just need Will Ferrell, or should I say the real Buddy the Elf, to visit and try his favorite dish.”

The treat is priced at $15 and the restaurant has received over 100 orders from patrons thus far -- and many have taken to Instagram to document their tackling the super-sweet treat.
