LadyB saysMy Gramma used to call these "ceci" and so we called them Christmas Chickies. (fried dough balls drizzled with honey and dressed with sprinkles, what a wonderful mess!) YEARS later I happened to pick up a can of chickpeas at an Italian grocery store and sure enough, on the other side CECI. Ah HAH. yes. They DID look like little chickpeas.report abuse
