Without a doubt, flakes from these sweets with traditional taste that everyone likes. Here we cook them with an irresistible touch of honey and orange blossom. As a recommendation when preparing them, it is important that you do not get distracted while frying them, as they can brown too much in an instant. And one more tip: do it in batches. Thus, the oil will not lose temperature. After that, leave them on absorbent paper so that the oil comes out, and then sprinkle them with syrup. They will be great!
