Nonna’s Authentic Chiacchiere Recipe

Chiacchiere is thin Italian fried dough. It is commonly eaten in Southern Italy during carnival. Nevertheless, this delicious fried dough can be found in other parts of Italy as well and is referred to as other names including rappe, cenci, bugie, frappole, galani, frittole, and crostoli. Chiacchiere translates to mean "little gossips". It got this name because of the crunching sound that is produced when it is eaten. Topped with a little powdered sugar, chiacchiere is a treat that cannot be resisted!
