If someone 15 years ago said that people would still be making Elf tributes in 2018, they would have been laughed at. Yet, here we are. Miss Ricky’s, a restaurant at Virgin Hotels Chicago, debuted a dessert that only Buddy the Elf could love: breakfast spaghetti.
This version is just as loaded as it is in the movie. The pasta dish is topped with Pop-Tarts, M&Ms, Fruity Pebbles, coconut, syrup, marshmallows, and strawberry, raspberry, and chocolate sauces. Yes, it’s something that only a human who thinks he’s an elf could love. And no, no one has been able to finish it, chef Moosah Reaume told MUNCHIES.
Miss Ricky’s specializes in comfort food, and nothing screams comfort like being uncomfortably full of a questionable dessert. On the restaurant’s website, the diner describes itself as a place that makes food “just like mom used to make…if mom were a cross-dressing foodie with a full sleeve tattoo.”
Breakfast spaghetti is a fitting Christmas dessert for anyone who has the heart and tastebuds of a child. While some countries have traditional Christmas desserts like rum cake in Jamaica or bûche de Noël in France, America has Will Ferrell movies. But when they come packed with advice like sticking to the four main food groups (candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup), can you blame us?
The bowl of immediate regret is available until Christmas day for $15.
