What's Caroline Manzo's Delicious Guilty Pleasure?
The RHONJ star shares her struffoli secret.
Dessert time just got even tastier. The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Caroline Manzo is sharing her recipe for struffoli, the perfect dinner party pleaser. Here's what you'll need to wow your guests.
3 cups of flour
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 stick of melted butter
Juice from 1/2 of a fresh orange
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp. of vanilla
Honey : 16 ounce
Crisco : 16 ounce
First, Mama Manzo says you need to mix together the "eggs, butter, juice, sugar, and vanilla until well blended. Add flour and baking power to form soft dough. Roll in ½ inch wide ropes. Cup into small pieces."
Time to add the heat! The fiery redhead instructs, "Melt enough Crisco to fry your dough. Cook until golden brown and set aside." And now flash us your sweet side for the grand finale, Caroline. "Melt as much honey needed and pour over your fried dough. Then add sprinkles." Side note, don’t expect leftovers.
