When it comes to Italian food I've never ventured outside of spaghetti and lasagna. So I searched for Italian desserts to try and came across struffoli. Struffoli is a deep fried dough that is covered with a sugar honey mixture. I was intrigued, and ideas came flooding because this is such a great food to add to any party, and you can add things to make it for any occasion and you can use a variety of flavors or colored sprinkles. For my Instructable I will give you the recipe for the dough and then tell you what I did to make my personalized struffoli. I made traditional, cinnamon, peanut butter chocolate honey, stuffed caramel apple, stuffed smores, and stuffed turtle.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients For Dough

This recipe makes enough struffoli to fill four 8x8 pans

6 Eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2 sticks of butter room temp
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp salt
vegetable oil for frying
Deep fryer
Brown paper bag or paper towel for drying

Ingredients for the toppings and stuffing
(depending on which ones you decide to make)
