Quick Time-Saving Tricks To Make This Recipe
- Use a pizza cutter or kitchen scissors to cut the crescent roll dough into thin strips! A sharp knife will do the job, but it will certainly take a bit more time.
- Press perforations in the dough together before cutting the dough. This will allow you to have longer strips without them breaking off!
- A dab of mustard or ketchup works great for attaching the candy eyeballs! However, if you don’t have any candy eyeballs then you can just use mustard or ketchup for the eyes.
- If serving these at a party, set out mini plastic cups of dipping sauce. That way guests can grab-n-go even quicker!
- For a fun variation, you can add American slice cheese slices! Just wrap the slice of cheese around the hot dog before covering them with the crescent roll dough.
How To Store These Mummy Dogs
Store any leftover crescent-wrapped hot dogs in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Enjoy them for up to 3 days!
Can I Spray The Baking Sheet With Cooking Spray If I Don’t Have Parchment Paper?
Yes, that will work just fine!
Where Can I Find Candy Eyeballs?
I’ve always been able to find them in the baking section at the grocery store. If you can’t find them there, oftentimes craft stores carry things like that.
Check out Michaels or Joann Fabrics & Crafts if they’re local to you! And of course, there’s always Amazon!
