How to Make Buddy the Elf's Breakfast Dessert Pasta

Here's How Buddy the Elf's Chocolaty Breakfast Dessert Pasta Actually Tastes IRL

Debatably one of the most cringe-worthy parts of the classic holiday movie Elf is watching Buddy devour his breakfast dessert pasta, an unappetizing mix of spaghetti and various sweet toppings. But there's no denying we've all secretly wondered what this sugar-high-inducing concoction would really taste like, and one brave chef just did the legwork for us.

YouTuber Andrew Rea, who is known for re-creating recipes from pop culture (like the Moistmaker sandwich from Friends), crafted Buddy's infamous pasta in all its chocolaty glory. He started by tossing cooked pasta with tomato sauce, butter, and olive oil, and then utterly smothered it with chocolate chips, M&Ms, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, caramel syrup, marshmallows, and crushed up Pop-Tarts. That sounds like a week's month's worth of sugar in one dish! So how did the concoction actually taste? Watch Andrew's video above to find out!
