These are long pieces (or balls) of deep fried dough tossed in honey, chocolate, nuts and sprinkled with hundreds and thousands. My family has been making these every Christmas and Easter for years. You could also use walnuts or pine nuts instead of almonds. Add a little extra flour if the mixture gets too sticky.
After several batches, dough begins to turn brown quickly. This means it is time to change the oil
Although this recipe took A LOT of work and time I really enjoyed the final product. I made this for a New Year's party and although it was a hit it was a little messy for everyone to be eating with their hands. I would recommend serving this as a unique desert at a sit down dinner so that people can use their forks! - 13 Nov 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
