These little Italian fried dough balls look like so much fun. Adapted from a recipe I saw on an episode of Mom's Home Cooking.

A simplified version of what I've had at my Italian SIL's. These are good but I missed the spiced honey.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add eggs and mix to form dough. Turn out on floured surface and add enough flour so that mixture is no longer sticky.
  2. Roll into small loaves, about 3" wide and 1/2" thick. Slice into strips crosswise about 1/2" thick and then chop the strips into 1/2" sections so that you now have little cubes.
  3. Bring oil to 350 degrees and deep fry in batches until golden brown. Place on paper towels on a plate or bowl.
  4. Heat honey and stir in sprinkles. Stir strufolli into honey mixture, then scoop into cupcake papers. Sprinkle with additional sprinkles.
