Halloween Fun ~ Hot Dog Mummies

I served these hot dog mummies along with the creepy smiles and carrot fingers as a fun Halloween inspired dinner for my kids.  Needless to say, this meal was a HUGE hit and both of my kids gobbled up every last bite of their dinners with no complaints!  This is a super fun, tasty, and festive dinner to make for your kids and they will think you are super COOL!!!  Stay tuned for the spooky and mouth watering dessert I served with this dinner.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Separate the dough from it’s container and form into squares (two triangles together).  Pinch the seams closed.  Cut 8 even strips lengthwise with a pizza cutter.  Starting at one end of the hot dog, wrap 4 strips around each hot dog, leaving a 1/2 an inch of the hot dog uncovered at the top for the mummy head. Place onto a baking sheet.

Place into the oven and bake for 10 minutes; turn the mummies over and cook for another 7 minutes, or until golden brown.  Remove from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.  Add dots of mustard for eyes.  Serve with ketchup.  Enjoy!
