Buddy's Breakfast: Tried and Tested by me

I'm guessing you've watched the movie Elf before, I mean most people have. But if not, first of all how? What? Why? And second of all, get to it! But if you have watched the Christmas movie then this blog post might make a bit more sense to you than to those who haven't. There is one scene in particular where Buddy makes a marvelous and extravagant breakfast, mostly made out of a multitude of all things sweet and sticky. Ring any bells? Maybe this picture will jog your memory?

I recently tried to recreate the beautiful meal myself out of ingredients that I found in my house! 

To make my version of Buddy's breakfast you will need:
Marshmallow Fluff
Krave Cereal
Candy Canes
A massive marshmallow
Some Spaghetti 

Step One: Boil your spaghetti to perfection. Actually it doesn't mean that much how well it's cooked, as long as your can chew through it..I mean you're not going to notice the texture next to the other ingredients anyway.

Step two: Dollop your marshmallow fluff and nutella onto your pasta. You can either mix it in or let it melt. Whatever jingle your bells!

Step three: Because I only had a jumbo marshmallow, I had to cut it up into chunks, but having mini marshmallows on hand is always a great idea, you know to throw on your porridge, toast, smoothie bowl etc.

Step four: Then you can go crazy with toppings!! For this meal I went for the healthier option of crushed up candy canes and chopped in half pieces of krave. Got to watch my figure this Christmas!

And there you have it, my version of Buddy the elf's Christmas breakfast!!

Before you think "I bet she threw that in the bin straight away" or "I bet she didn't even try it", I did try it and it was absolutely gorgeous! The subtle starchyness of the spaghetti really compliments the hard hitting peppermint and tastes great drenched in the melted nutella. The marshmallow is really sweet yet significantly warm on the palette and the cereal adds that extra crunch that would otherwise be missing. I highly recommend you try it for yourself to feel the true taste!

Will you be trying this recipe this Christmas?
Much love,

p.s I did actually try it and it was rather disgusting! I felt extremely sick afterwards aha! I wouldn't try this, but I hope you got my sense of humor ;)
