"Perhaps the easiest version to make easy Elephant Ears I have come across! It only require 3 ingredients to yield 32 servings. An outstanding sweet to offer for a dessert, or as a Brunch contribution. Each one is just 87 calories, for a real treat. Family kids can easily learn just how to cook when helping you to make these!"
