Italian Honey Balls

(5 Votes)
COOK TIME
35 Min

A delectable dessert, these Italian Honey Balls are finger-lickin' good. Bake these for the holidays and you'll be the life of the party! These honey-drenched balls of dough are hard to keep away from!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring water, oil, and salt to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and slowly stir in flour, beating with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Beat in eggs one at a time until well blended and smooth.
     
  2. Using a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon, form mixture into small balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden; set aside to cool.
     
  3. In a small saucepan, bring honey, sugar, and cinnamon to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue boiling until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, then combine baked balls and honey mixture in a medium-sized bowl until balls are completely coated.
     
  4. Pile balls into a mound on a serving platter. Do not refrigerate.
Notes

You can make this really festive by garnishing it with candied cherries, almond or even multicolored Jordan almonds (candy-coated almonds, also called "wedding confetti").
