Diples or Thiples (Greek: Δίπλες) is a Greek dessert, made of thin sheet-like dough. The dough is rolled into long, thin strips, fried and folded in hot oil and then dipped in syrup. Traditionally, warm honey is used in place of syrup, and the thiples are sprinkles with chopped nuts and cinnamon. Thiples can be made in different shapes, of which the most common are bow ties and spirals. Diples are a typical dessert in the Peloponese and are also served at weddings and at New Year's celebrations. Diples made on an iron mould dipped in batter and cooked in cooking oil.
Another form uses an iron mould dipped in diples batter and cooked in cooking oil until the diples separates from the mould. It is topped with honey, crushed walnut, and cinnamon.
