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.
They are served at Christmas, Easter and parties and are sometimes served warm.
Struffoli is often scooped into a small bag for gifts.
Struffoli is just bigger than M&M's.
Strufolli resembles mini Scones, and a glass of water is recommended if chowing down on a large amount of strufolli.
When on your trip to Naples during a holiday season, make sure you have some strufolli!
