Made by Hand Just Like Nonna’s Recipe

Our struffoli starts with a simple dough made from flour, eggs, salt and citrus zest. We roll small pieces by hand to create little balls or knot shapes, all rustic and irregular just like Italian grandmothers do.

The struffoli puffs up crispy and golden when fried gently in olive oil. Finally, we drizzle each piece with pure Italian honey. The result is a beautiful medley of crunchy fried dough balls glazed in sticky sweetness.

This dessert takes some work to make, but that homemade quality is what makes struffoli so special. We honor tradition and make them by hand the same way Nonna did for generations of Italians.

Crispy, Crunchy Fried Dough Glazed with Sweet Honey

Struffoli has a delightful contrast of textures and flavors:

  • Fluffy and crispy on the outside from frying
  • Soft and chewy on the inside
  • Citrus zest in the dough brightens every bite
  • Pure Italian honey adds the perfect sweetness as it drizzles through the piles of dough

This classic treat hits so many senses at once – the satisfying crunch as you bite into each piece, then the honeyed sweetness, bright citrus, and chewy dough.

The light frying gives the dough an irresistible crispy texture without being greasy. The olive oil makes each piece so crunchy it almost pops when you bite into it!

Once drizzled with honey, the struffoli develops an even more complex flavor. The honey’s floral sweetness balances beautifully with the fried dough. This is an indulgent yet still light dessert that’s impossible to stop eating!
