Delicious 5 Star Recipe

Wonderful not to have to use and dirty my food processor making sticky dough and then deep frying. This recipe is made in one bowl. There is no need to roll the dough. Just pinch off a piece from the bowl and roll into a ball. EASY! To the mix, I add 1 Tbl. of whiskey, rum, grand manier....whatever I have on hand. I let the struffola dry in a paper bag for a couple of days. Heat 1/2 cup of honey, orange zest and 1 tsp rum; add struffola and stir to coat. Pour onto tray and sprinkle with colored nonpareils. Perfecto! I will never fry struffola again.

Why are these called "Honey

Why are these called "Honey Balls" if there is no honey?

They left out the honey in this recipe!

In large pot, heat 1/2 cup of honey, orange zest, and (optional) 1 tsp rum, whiskey, B&B... Then add struffola and stir to coat. Pour onto tray and sprinkle with colored nonpareils.
