This is a great hostess gift! My mom would use festive holiday bowls and bring to people she would visit. Fun and easy to make. I remember making these when I was just a kid.

These will be an adorable addition to your dessert tray this Christmas. The inside of the honey balls stay soft and the outside gets a bit crisp. The honey sauce is where all the flavor comes from. The colored sprinkles add crunch and make these a festive dessert. We've seen these called Struffoli too and are a great little bite to satisfy your sweet tooth. They'd make great gifts for the holiday too! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
