Struffoli is a Neapolitan dish made of deep fried balls of dough about the size of marbles. Crunchy on the outside and light inside, struffoli are mixed with honey and other sweet ingredients. There are many different ways to dress them, but the traditional way is to mix them in honey with diavulilli (nonpareils sprinkles), cinnamon, and bits of orange rind. In Calabria they are also known as scalilli.
They are served at Christmas and are sometimes served warm.
Struffoli typically have a diameter just bigger than those of M&M's candies, resemble miniature Scones and are often scooped into a small bag for gifts. As the dish is sticky, a glass of water is recommended as accompaniment.
