Mummy Dogs

Around Halloween time, I start daydreaming about the costume parties and trick-or-treating adventures from my childhood.

I have such fond memories of my mom whipping up spooky yet delicious treats for our gatherings.

That nostalgia inspired me to create these fun Mummy Dogs – hot dogs wrapped up in crescent roll “bandages“.

They’re a cute, creative party snack that kids and adults alike will devour.

Why You’ll Love Mummy Dogs

These mummy dogs are just so much fun! Not only are they super easy to throw together, but they also make a fantastic Halloween-themed appetizer. Way more interactive than boring old candy, mummy dogs are sure to be a hit at your monster mash.


To get nice even “bandages”, pinch two crescent roll triangles together tightly before cutting strips. You can also wrap the dogs ahead of time and just bake before your party – super helpful!


Crescent Rolls

The flaky, buttery crescent roll dough makes the perfect mummy wraps.

Hot Dogs

Good old-fashioned wieners like Vienna Beef work best to encase in dough.


Yellow mustard dots make great mummy eyes to decorate your dogs!

How to Make Mummy Dogs

Prep the Dough

Preheat that oven to 375°F. Roll out your crescent rolls into a sheet. Pinch two triangles together to make squares and use a pizza cutter to slice the dough into strips – these will be our “bandages”.

Wrap Up the Dogs

Take a hot dog and wrap 3 of those crescent roll strips around it, leaving a little gap at the top for the face. Repeat with remaining dogs and dough strips.

Bake Your Mummies

Pop those wrapped dogs in the oven for about 20 minutes until the dough is baked up nice and golden brown.

Add the Details

Once cooled, use some mustard to dot on eyes and customize your mummy dogs’ faces. Too cute!

Serving Suggestions

Offer dipping sauces like ketchup, mustard or cheese sauce for dunking these frightful treats! They’re ideal for any Halloween bash.


Swap regular hot dogs for veggie dogs to make these mummies vegetarian-friendly.


Just an oven and pizza cutter for these cute party snacks.


What hot dogs can I use?

Any kind works, but Vienna Beef is tested and perfect!

Can I prep them ahead of time?

Absolutely! Wrap dogs beforehand and just bake before your spooky event.
