READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Muffin Goddess

I haven't made this myself, but I've eaten it on sopaipillas before, and it's lovely. I would imagine it would be delicious on any type of fried pastry, or even on ice cream or pancakes. From Mexican Desserts and Drinks.

I made this for the for the "fiesta Rapido" challenge for Tex-Mex recipes. It's really a quick dessert, can be enjoyed on pancakes, ice creams, but I would really appreciate this on Greek yogurt as well. Depending on the honey quality this can be result quite dense and it's necessary to take care because it is VERY hot while boiling! The butter is very important, please no substitute. Thanks a lot for this delicious recipe!
