I have to say that Halloween is probably my favorite holiday other than Christmas. It is just something about the leaves changing, all the yellows and orange colors, the brisk fall air and pumpkins. I enjoy all the decorations and of course all the little kids out dressed up on Halloween. I remember as a child the joy we had when we went trick or treating. We live in a nice little neighborhood and we would run the hood and collect all the candy before moving onto another great neighborhood. The funny thing was that we would get so excited and would run from house to house that at least once or twice we would fall in a ditch and loose half our stash. I am sure the neighbors would see all this candy laid out in there ditch the next day and wonder where it came from. Oh the memories we had growing up living here. I was so upset when I got to be too old to go trick or treating. Now I get to relive those memories with my kids, my son is too old now, but my daughter still has quite a few years left. I still get excited on Halloween night and love that I get to see that sparkle in my daughters eyes getting dressed up and ready to go trick or treating in the same neighborhood I did as a child.
These Mummy Dogs are so easy to make with either canned bread sticks (which I have a hard time finding in my area) or crescent rolls. I mean, who doesn't love pigs in a blanket?
Halloween Mummy Dogs
1 can of crescent rolls
10 - 12 hot dogs
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll crescent roll and pinch together to form a sheet. (you can also find crescent rolls sheets.) With a knife or pizza cutter, cut the crescent rolls into strips. Wrap the crescent roll "bandages," around the hot dog stretching slightly to completely cover the hot dog.
About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dog shows through for the "face." Place mummy dogs on a large baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown. Use mustard to make the eyes.
**Add a small piece of cheese onto the "face" of the mummy dog and place back in the oven for a minute to melt. Immediately remove and add candy eyes. Enjoy!
