Halloween is coming up in just a couple more weeks. Are you ready? Have you bought the candy yet? If you have bought the candy, how many of you have already eaten it? I know I would have. We are never home for Halloween so I don’t buy Halloween candy for the trick-or-treaters, which is lucky because I would have already eaten it! I love how every year everyone brings all their leftover candy to work in order to avoid eating it themselves. Who has the discipline to NOT eat Halloween candy? Even Cliff, the non-sweets eater, can’t say no to Halloween candy!
I am not having a Halloween party at our house but we do have a couple to attend so I have been searching for cute Halloween treats. Most Halloween foods are candy related. There is nothing wrong with candy but sometimes you just need a break! Don’t worry though we have a few candy related Halloween posts coming up still! One of my favorite non-candy Halloween food ideas were these “mummy dogs.” I mean seriously, how cute are these? Everybody loves the little cocktail wieners wrapped in crescent rolls, right? So why not adapt those a little and make them mummy dogs? Genius idea! I only wish it was mine! If you are taking these to a party I would wrap them ahead of time, pop them in the oven and then add the mummy’s eyes.
1 tube of crescent rolls
8 hot dogs (we like Vienna Beef)
Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees. Roll out the crescent rolls into one sheet. Place 2 triangles together and pinch the seams together to make a square. Using a pizza cutter cut the dough into 6 strips strips. Repeat with the remaining dough. You should get 24 strips. Wrap 3 pieces of dough around each hot dog, leaving a little space at the top for the mummy’s face. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the crescent rolls start to turn golden brown. Allow the hot dogs to cool and using mustard add the eyes to the mummy. Serve with ketchup, mustard or nacho cheese.
