The Honey balls, are so easy to make, I have two recipies, you can find them on Cooks.com I think if not when I get home I can copy them and give them to you, they are the best!1

My 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.
