How to Make Italian Struffoli for Christmas

Featured
These delicious honey balls are a traditional Italian Christmas sweet treat. Not only are they good to eat, but they also make a very festive centerpiece for a holiday dessert table.

What's more, preparing struffoli is a wonderful group or family activity as many hands make short work of rolling the dough.

To make them, carefully drop them one by one into hot frying oil, then watch them bubble up into a golden brown, Finally, add the honey, drizzle with colorful sprinkles... and Buon Natale (Merry Christmas!) to all.
