Move Over Candy Canes, Struffoli and Torrone are the Candies You Want this Holiday

The holidays are a season for sweets. Everywhere you look, there are dessert platters, candy canes, peppermint bark and more. But, what you can’t find everywhere are authentic Italian candies made from scratch. Scialo Bros. Bakery in Providence, RI offers products you can’t find just anywhere. As a 100-year-old Italian bakery, they specialize in preservative-free pastries, breads and desserts that are carefully made on-site.

Their most popular desserts during the holidays are traditions from Italy including struffoli, torrone and Italian cookie trays layered with several cookies to choose from.


Struffoli is an Italian tradition that goes back centuries. Meant to be shared with family and friends around the table on Christmas Eve, this dessert is typically eaten over conversation and the giving of well wishes for the new year. This shareable Neapolitan dessert consists of a fried egg dough covered in honey and layered with colorful sprinkles and Jordan almonds.


Torrone is a must-have holiday candy bought in bricks of all sizes and then cut into bite-size pieces for consumption. It’s an almond nougat candy made with white clover honey, sugar,almonds, vanilla and cinnamon.

Italian Cookie Trays:

The staff takes the time to make sure every 3 and 10 lb. cookie tray is crafted to perfection. Each gold tray begins with a base of biscotti cookies and then layered with amaretti, chocolate macarons, sugar cookies with sprinkles, pistachio cranberry, black/white, butterball and more. They’re then wrapped in cellophane, tied with a bow, and ready to be delivered.
