       3 lg Eggs
       1 tb Butter; softened
       1 ts Sugar; plus
     1/2 c  Sugar

     Whisk together: eggs, butter, 1 tsp sugar until foamy. Add baking powder;
   add flour.  Work the mixture into a soft dough with your hands. Divide
   dough into 4 pieces.
      On a floured surface, roll each piece into a rope about the width of
   your index finger and 12 inches long.  Cut the ropes into 1 pieces. Toss
   the pieces with enough flour to dust them lightly and shake off excess
   flour.  Heat oil to 375F in a deep fryer. Fry the struffoli a few handfuls
   at a time until they puff up and are golden brown. Using a slotted spoon,
   transfer to a paper towel to drain. Combine the honey and the 1/2 cups
   sugar in a large saucepan over low heat; stirring until the sugar has
   dissolved; keep warm over low heat. Add the fried balls, a few at a time,
   and turn them with a wooden spoon to coat on all sides. Transfer the balls
   to a large platter and mound them into a pyramid, shaping with wet hands.
   Sprinkle with the colored sprinkles and let stand for 1 to 2 hours. Break
   off pieces to eat.
