Everybody knows that elves stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup. That’s especially true for Buddy the Elf in the beloved Christmas movie Elf. A hotel in Chicago is bringing that love of sweets to one of its holiday dishes.
According to ABC’s Good Morning America, Virgin Hotel is offering dessert pasta at a pop-up candy store inside the hotel’s coffee shop, Two Zero Three. It is the dish’s second year, and will be available for a limited time on Monday, December 16.
Instead of using regular spaghetti, the dish features handmade chocolate pasta topped with marshmallows, M&M’s, sprinkles, chocolate cookie toppings, coconut flakes, strawberry sauce, and a side of maple syrup.
“We wanted to create a whimsical experience for guests to come by and get great sweets while also immersing themselves in the fun and playfulness of chocolate,” says executive pastry chef Juan Gutierrez.
