HelloFresh Is Releasing Spaghetti Meal Kits Inspired By Buddy The Elf

The secret is maple syrup and chocolate sauce!

The holidays can be a hard time to eat healthy, but no matter the season, it’s important to make sure you’re getting the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup. Fortunately, HelloFresh, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, has got you covered with limited edition Buddy the Elf™ Spaghetti Meal Kits.

Inspired by the iconic holiday film Elf, the recipe includes everything you need for a “nutritious” spaghetti dinner (or breakfast). The dish begins with a sumptuous base of Colavita spaghetti (mmmmm) and is topped with maple syrup, chocolate syrup (does syrup have sugar in it...? There’s no way to tell...) marshmallows, chocolate nonpareil candies, chocolate frosted pastries (we find it’s best to crumble them and just sort of massage them into the spaghetti) and more. Eat it with your hands and don’t forget to pair with a bottle of cola (chugged in a single gulp, naturally). After all, you’re a growing elf! You need to keep your strength up, especially during the holidays.

“While drawing inspiration from the sweet spaghetti dish seen in the movie Elf, we created a chocolate-forward version that stays true to Buddy the Elf’s dish, incorporating crushed chocolate cereal, various chocolate candies, marshmallows, and of course, syrup,” said Michelle Doll Olson, culinary development manager for HelloFresh. “Our goal is always to create recipes that are both tasty and fun to prepare, and we’re sure this over-the-top recipe will satisfy any elf’s sweet tooth while bringing the holiday spirit to your household!”
