Yes, I remember them very well.
At Christmas they were usually arranged in a pyramid shape to resemble a Christmas tree, and covered in those tiny colored sugar balls (non-pariels?) and sometimes had tiny tinsel, too. It was beautiful, a centerpiece dish for the table.
I remember my Italian grandmother served it, along with homemmade canollis and other treats. There are also these candies, sort of 1 inch hard curly things with "bumps" on them, also pastel colored, with a tiny piece of cinnamon bark inside. Oh, I think they were called confettis.
The situatin was, my grandmother was from the Marches, North Central Italy, and always (repeatedly, pointedly) reminded us that stuffoli was from Southern Italy, but, only becuase it was Christmas, she agreed to have it on her table.
