Victoria's Amazing Tortilla Elephant Ears

"Victoria's Amazing Elephant Ears" is a recipe my grand-daughter came up with after tasting an "Elephant Ear" at the fair. It is an easy recipe that has few ingredients yet produces an amazingly tasty snack! It would be a fun project for kids with adult supervision as a deep fryer is used.

You will need:

A deep fryer filled with oil heated to 350 degrees

Tongs to flip and safely remove "ears"

8" Flour Tortillas

Cinnamon/Sugar mixture (make your own with 1 part cinnamon--2 parts sugar)

Drop tortilla into fryer. Us tongs to flip and fry until light brown on both sides. Use tongs to remove. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture while still warm.

Eat and Enjoy !

(See Step by Step Photos below)
