You can cover all of the main elf food groups with HelloFresh's limited-edition Buddy the Elf-inspired spaghetti dinner kit. Just like in "Elf," the kit includes everything you need for a sugary spaghetti breakfast, from assorted candies to marshmallows and (of course) maple syrup. The meal-kit company's culinary development manager, Michelle Doll Olson, describes HelloFresh's take on the iconic pasta dish as "chocolate forward." 

As the base of the dish, the Colavita spaghetti is the only thing traditional about this pasta. Other ingredients include chocolate-frosted pastries, chocolate syrup, chocolate nonpareil candies, and other sweets. And if you don't want to be a cotton-headed ninny muggins, you can harness your inner elf and slurp down an entire 2-liter bottle of Coca-Cola after shoveling the spaghetti into your mouth like a wild animal. You may as well commit, right?

The Buddy the Elf spaghetti kit is available online, while supplies last, starting Dec. 5 at 12:25 p.m. ET. A HelloFresh subscription isn't required for purchase, so you can elf out with no strings attached. The kit includes step-by-step preparation instructions, all needed ingredients, and is priced at $15 for two servings.
