Mummy Dogs

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.

Here is what you'll need

Pinch 2 triangles together to form a square. Cut each square into 6 strips.

Wrap 3 pieces of dough around each hot dog, leaving a little space at the top for the face

Pop them in the oven for about 20 minutes

Use the mustard to make little mummy eyes

The perfect Halloween snack!
