Shopping list

This 4-ingredient recipe will be done in a flash and tasty too! Who doesn’t love a spooky spin on pigs in a blanket?

To buy:

  • Hot dogs – Regular hot dogs are our favorite but if you like cheese filled hot dogs, that would add another layer of ghoulish gooeyness!
  • Crescent roll dough – Rolled out and cut into strips, this will form your mummy wrap.
  • Candy eyes – Whatever kind you can find. Use them one, two, or three at a time.
  • Ketchup – For dipping and also for securing the eyes on your little mummy dogs. Mustard eyes work too!

Additional supplies:

  • Cooking spray – To coat your baking sheet. You can also spray dough to make handling it a little easier.
  • Pizza cutter or kitchen scissors – For cutting strips of crescent dough.
  • Large cookie sheet – depending on how many hot dogs you make, a smaller size could also work.

How to Make Halloween Mummy Dogs

Easy recipes are such a great way to get kids involved in cooking with supervision. My son can do all of the steps needed as long as I’m around while he’s using the oven.

To start, preheat oven to 350°F

Then, unroll the dough and press perforations together so you have one large rectangular dough sheet.

Using a pizza cutter, slice pieces of dough into thin strips.

Start at the end of each hot dog and begin wrapping a strip of dough all the way down to create your mummy wrap.

TIP: The crescent rolls will expand as they bake so be sure to keep some space as you wrap the hot dog to get the full effect.

If you have excess dough at the bottom of the hot dog, wrap it there or trim off.

Place your hot dog mummies on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray (or lined with parchment paper) and bake for about 10 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown.

Use a small drop of ketchup to secure the candy eyes and serve immediately!
