Can we be honest about the Elf food recipe?
Although it’s funny — I mean that classic Buddy the Elf spaghetti pop tarts smash? GOLD — we didn’t want to make the Elf movie spaghetti recipe just to recreate the Buddy the Elf breakfast spaghetti scene and waste food by creating a pasta recipe nobody wants to eat.
We wanted to create a fun holiday treat that gave a nod to the Buddy Elf movie, while also giving you candy spaghetti cookies you actually want to eat!
I mean, does spaghetti and syrup taste good?
I have no idea. (Maybe?) But, these Buddy the Elf pasta desserts sure do!
Here’s how to make Buddy the Elf’s breakfast pasta that you will really eat.
It’s our take on the Buddy Elf spaghetti recipe — except kind of in an Elf Christmas cookie bar form!
They super fun foods for a kids holiday party or Christmas Elf theme party!
If you want to have a lot of fun, allow kids to decorate their own Buddy the Elf spaghetti cookies.
Here’s how to make sweet treats from the Elf movie (no bake cookies)…
How To Make Elf Movie Breakfast Spaghetti Buddy the Elf Cookies
For our Buddy The Elf spaghetti cookie bars, we used butterscotch morsels and also milk chocolate.
If you want a lighter cookie to look more like the color of spaghetti noodles, use white chocolate instead of milk chocolate.
You can also spread these in a baking pan and, once they’ve set, cut them apart for Buddy The Elf cookie bars.
But, we think they’re super cute as little piles of mini spaghetti – no baking required!
Don’t forget that this is Elf syrup spaghetti! Serve garnished with chocolate sauce and maple syrup sauce to stay with the Elf theme.
Buddy Elf Breakfast Spaghetti Treats
These Elf inspired breakfast spaghetti cookie treats are a fun addition to any Elf theme party! They'll make around 12-15 Elf cookies, depending on how full you fill your muffin tins.
- 1 5-ounce container crispy Chow Mein Noodles
- 1/2 cup butterscotch morsels
- 1/4 cup milk chocolate morsels (or white chocolate for lighter "spaghetti")
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (optional)
- 1/4 cup mini M&Ms, for toppings
- 1/4 cup dehydrated marshmallows, for toppings
- Mini colored marshmallows (cut into smaller pieces with kitchen scissors), for toppings
- 1 chocolate fudge iced Pop-Tart, broken and crushed into small crumbles
- Chocolate syrup (for garnish drizzle)
- Maple syrup (for garnish drizzle)
- Spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Pour Chow Mein Noodles into a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
- In a large microwavable bowl, place the butterscotch morsels, chocolate morsels, and peanut butter. Microwave in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth, stirring between each interval. (Do not over cook!)
- Immediately pour chocolate peanut butter mixture over Chow Mein Noodles. Gently stir until all noodles are coated.
- Working on a few muffin sections at a time, spoon three mini muffin cups halfway with chocolate covered chow mein noodles. Quickly add toppings — dehydrated marshmallows, mini M&Ms, colored marshmallow pieces and crushed PopTart.
- Repeat process until all chocolate Chow Mein noodles are in the muffin tins and decorated with toppings.
- Keep in muffin tins until set when you run a knife around the edges and they easily come up. (Around 10 minutes.)
- Place on serving platter and drizzle with chocolate syrup and maple syrup.
Prepare your toppings ahead of time by placing them in small dishes you can easily access and cutting your colored marshmallows. Since these Christmas cookies set fairly quickly, you'll need to work fast to get your toppings added so they stay on.
If you really want to stick with Buddy Elf's four food groups, garnish the serving platter with candy canes and candy corn, too!

Can they be made a day ahead of use?
I’m not sure how well they keep because we made them and then used them (ate them) that afternoon. I would definitely put them in an airtight container and then not add the chocolate syrup drizzle until right before you serve them.
