Horton Hears A Who "Elephant Ears" Recipe

We've spent this week doing fun things in celebration of Dr.Seuss and his Birthday (March 2nd).

This post goes with one of our favorites here at the Zoo. Horton Hears A Who!

We made elephant ear snacks.  These are like funnel cakes and I'm sure you've seen them here and there before.

Here is what you need:

  • Tortillas
  • cinnamon sugar
  • 2 Tbsp oil 
  • zip lock bag


You can fry them whole.  Or if your child can use centers they can cut them.  They cut very easily.  I cut them into fourths.


Now add your oil to pan, get it hot and popping , then add the tortillas.


See how they are getting bubbly.  It only takes a few seconds on each side.
Remove them from pain and drain them on a paper towel to blot some of the oil off.


Here is the next step for the kiddos.  Add cooked tortillas 2 fourths at a time and a good amount of cinnamon sugar to bag.  Then shake them.  My daughter is shaking some above.

Remove from bag and place on a plate.  There you have them and they are yummy.
