Halloween Hot Dog Mummies are a spooky treat for bandaging up your Halloween hunger pains. This is a fun recipe that the kids can help their mummy and deady with! A perfect recipe to wrap up your Halloween party menu!
Halloween Hot Dog Mummies
Halloween treats seem to be mostly sweet snacks. It makes sense since Trick-or-Treating is all about the candy! This is a savory recipe that can be dinner or a Halloween party food.
Wether you are planning a Halloween party, or just having some friends over for some treats, these easy to make Halloween Hot Dog Mummies will look fun on your Halloween spread! They also taste good!
Conjuring up these creepy mummies is easy. Let me show you how:
1. On each rectangle of crescent dough, gently pinch together the perforation between the 2 triangles so it is a smooth rectangle of dough.
2. Cut the dough lengthwise into ten 1/4″ strips. You will end up with forty 1/4″ strips of dough total. I use a pizza cutter, but you could easily use a butter knife. They don’t have to be perfect!
3. Wrap 4 strips around each hot dog, stretching the strip a little if you need to, leaving some gaps where the hot dog shows through. You can even leave a gap near the top to put in some eyes!
If you want these to be more of an appetizer, you could make mini Hot Dog Mummies by using cocktail wieners or just cut regular size hotdogs in half.
I use a toothpick dipped in mustard to make the eyes. Aren’t they cute? The scariest pigs in a blanket ever!
Your guests can dip these Halloween Hot Dog Mummies in ketchup, mustard, or mix them together! A fry sauce would be tasty for dipping, also.

Halloween Hot Dog Mummies are a tasty treat for wrapping up your Halloween hunger pains. This is a fun recipe that the kids can help with!
- 10 Hot Dogs
- 1 (8 oz) can Refrigerated Crescent Rolls*
- 10 (1/4") Slices of American Cheese (or thinly cut cheddar)
Heat oven to 375° F.
Take the hot dogs out of the package and dry them using paper towels. Set aside.
Carefully unroll the crescent dough. Don't separate the triangles. Separate at the perforations that are after every 2 triangles, so you have a rectangle (made of 2 triangles). You will have 4 total rectangles.
On each rectangle, gently pinch together the perforation between the 2 triangles so it is a smooth rectangle of dough.
Cut the dough lengthwise into ten 1/4" strips. You will end up with forty 1/4" strips of dough total.
Wrap 4 strips around each hot dog, stretching the strip a little, leaving some gaps where the hot dog shows through. You can even leave a gap near the top to put in some eyes!
OPTIONAL: Place a slice of cheese on one side of the hot dog and wrap the dough "bandages" around to hold cheese in place.
Place them on an ungreased baking sheet (cheese side down, if using cheese).
Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown.
Serve immediately with dipping sauce of your choice.
*Keep the dough refrigerated until you are ready for them. Otherwise the dough is hard to work with.
For appetizer sized hot dog mummies, just use cocktail wieners or cut the regular size hot dogs in half.
