Easy to make, these sticky and sweet, ball-shaped treats make a tasty and colorful addition to any holiday menu. Who knows, they may well become your tradition.
For me, regardless of the distance I seem to travel from my roots with each passing year, I cannot think of a Christmas past without envisioning a plate of Struffoli adorning a table as a welcoming gesture to each holiday visitor.
For those that do not know, Struffoli are essentially little, deep fried balls of dough, roughly the size of marbles. They are coated with honey and although traditionally dressed in a variety of manners, the most popular is with nonpareil sprinkles, and less frequently, cinnamon and bits of orange rind.
