These hot dog mummies are the perfect Halloween treat. They’re fast, easy, a teeny bit spooky, and are perfect to make with kids as a Halloween activity.

Hot dog mummies are a Halloween twist on dizzy dogs, which were one of my childhood favorites. Honestly, I almost always ate the breading off the outside of the hotdog because that was my favorite part! With a little ketchup these make the perfect meal!

This recipe is great for involving kids in your cooking in a fun way. They can wrap their own mummies, and then once they’re baked the kids can add the eyes to their mummy. Super cute and fun! A wonderful Halloween activity that’s fun for everyone, especially the little ones.

What Type of Dough to Use

For these hot dog mummies, we use refrigerated crescent dough. It’s easy to find and inexpensive. You just need to press together the seams of the rectangles as they come out of the tin, then cut them into squares.

If you want to make your own dough, this quick & easy pizza dough recipe works well. You can also use store-bought pizza dough. Just roll it out and cut it into strips.

A yeast-less dough is the best for this activity, so it doesn’t rise too much.

How to Make Hot Dog Mummies

First, open the crescent rolls and press together the perforated edges so that the dough forms four large rectangles. Cut each rectangle of dough into ten strips, then cut each slice of cheese into four pieces. 

Take a slice of cheese and place it lengthwise along each hot dog. Then, using four strips of dough per hotdog, wrap the hotdog in the ‘mummy wrappings’ leaving a little gap at the “head” of each mummy to add eyes later.

Place the hotdogs cheese side down onto a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown.

Let cool completely, then decorate with eyes by placing a drop of white frosting then a drop of black frosting on top.

What Frosting to Use

To keep it really simple just use a dab of mayonnaise and ketchup for the eyes.

But if you want to get creative, then I recommend using white and black icing that you can get in tubes, like the ones below.

Thinking about making other great fall foods? Why not try a few of these.

Ingredients

  • 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls 8 oz
  • 2 ½ slices American cheese quartered
  • 10 hot dogs
  • Cooking spray
  • White and black cookie icing optional
  • Mustard and ketchup for dipping

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  • Unroll the crescent rolls. Press the perforated seams together on each rectangle.
  • Cut each rectangle of dough into 10 long strips of dough. Quarter the cheese slices into 4 long strips of cheese.
  • Put a slice of cheese lengthwise on each hot dog. Use 4 slices of dough to wrap each hot dog up like bandages on a mummy. Leave a small space at the “head” to add eyeballs.
  • Place each mummy onto a baking sheet, cheese side down. Spray the tops lightly with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the dough is golden brown.
  • To make the eyes, squirt on a drop of white icing and a drop of black icing.

Notes

Can be made without cheese to make them dairy free.
If you don’t have crescent dough, any dough cut into strips will work.
This recipe works best with regular hot dogs, not sausage. To make appetizer sized mummies, cut the hot dogs in half.
This recipe makes 5 dinner servings (2 hot dogs each), or 10-20 appetizers.
