Kuping Gajah (Elephant Ears)

Hariyati Fahey from Indonesia

These pastries are called this because they are shaped like elephant ears. They are a favorite of many people in my country. They are served at weddings, at Christmas time and at the Idul-Fitre, a celebration for Muslims (Ramadan). They are one of my favorite foods. I like them because they have a chocolate taste.
