Check out the recipe and whip these up before your kids go searching for candy.

Making the Crescent Mummy Hot Dogs
Once you gather your ingredients, you’ll be ready to make the mummy dogs. First, turn your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, roll out the dough and use the perforations to separate it. You’ll end up with four rectangular pieces of dough. Then, press down on the perforations.
Next, take out a knife and cut each piece of dough into 10 pieces, so you have 40 pieces total. Cut each piece lengthwise, and then slice the cheese into quarters.
Now, it’s time to use the dough to turn the hot dogs into terrifying mummies. Grab a hot dog, a strip of cheese, and four pieces of dough. Wrap the four pieces around the hot dog and cheese. Space the dough out a bit as you wrap it, so each piece looks like a bandage. Wrap the bandages evenly until there’s only a half-inch left on one end of the hot dog. Leave enough room to create a face for the mummy, and then continue wrapping the dough to the end of the hot dog.
Throw all the mummy dogs on an ungreased baking sheet. Then, spray the mummy dogs with cooking spray and pop them in the oven for 13-17 minutes. They’ll be ready when the dough turns golden brown.
Finally, use mustard or ketchup to draw a face on each hot dog. Put some ketchup on the table for the little ones and let everyone dig into the delicious meal.
It’s easy to get excited about dinner when you’re eating mummy dogs. Whip some up for the kiddos, and make extra for yourself. They smell so good you’ll be jealous if you only make enough for your kids.
