Mummy Halloween Hot Dogs

This year, consider whipping up a simple yet spooky 4-ingredient Halloween dinner that’s sure to delight both kids and adults alike. The mummy hot dogs are an absolute showstopper, boasting a fun-to-eat and taste-bud-tingling combination that’s perfect for the season. And the best part? They’re incredibly easy to make! All you need is a few basic ingredients: wieners, crescent dough, candy eyes, and mustard. The result is a hot dog snack that’s as adorable as it is delicious. Whether served straight from the oven or added to a buffet spread later on, these mummy hot dogs are sure to be a hit with anyone who tries them.

How to Make Mummy Halloween Hot Dogs

Before starting to create these spooky pigs in a blanket, it’s crucial to ensure that the wieners are thoroughly dry. Any excess moisture can seep into the dough and result in a soggy rather than spooky snack. To avoid this, gently wipe the wieners with paper towels to remove any lingering dampness.

Next, roll out the dough, taking care to pinching the seams together as you go. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the dough into approximately 1/4-inch strips – their length isn’t crucial, so don’t worry if they break during the process. After all, spooky mummies aren’t about precision bandaging.

Wrap each strip of dough around a wiener, incorporating a few subtle crisscross patterns to add texture without overwhelming the finished product. Be mindful of leaving space in the face area, as this will provide a clean canvas for adding the eyes later on.

Arrange the spooky hot dog mummies on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for around 8 minutes – or slightly longer if needed. Keep an eye out for when the dough turns crisp and golden, signaling that these Halloween party treats are done.

Finally, bring your creations to life by adding candy eyes to the face area. Secure them in place using a condiment of your choice, such as mustard, ketchup, or BBQ sauce.

What to Serve with this Halloween Dinner

As you’re preparing these as part of a dinner menu, consider pairing them with traditional hot dog accompaniments that add to the festive atmosphere. To further amplify the Halloween spirit, create themed sides such as skull-shaped potatoes or a black charcoal pizza that resembles a witch’s cauldron. Alternatively, stick to classic choices like coleslaw, fries, or corn on the cob, letting your creativity guide the direction of your meal.

Mummy Halloween Hot Dogs FAQs

While it’s possible to prepare crescent roll hot dog mummies ahead of time, their optimal taste and texture are best enjoyed fresh. You can arrange them on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for up to 2 days or store at room temperature for a short period. If you prefer to bake them in advance, they’ll keep for 3 days when stored in an airtight container. Alternatively, you can also make them in an air fryer – simply preheat the device to 330°F and cook the mummies for approximately 7 minutes. This option is ideal if you’re preparing multiple Halloween-themed snacks simultaneously.

Mummy Halloween Hot Dogs

Bella Bucchiotti invites you to conjure up some mummy Halloween hot dogs, a delightfully simple and spooky snack that’s sure to cast a spell on both kids and adults. With only four ingredients required, this recipe is an absolute treat for anyone who loves hot dogs – think Spooky Pigs in a Blanket, reimagined for the eerie evening of All Hallows’ Eve.

Prepare yourself for just 10 minutes before firing up your stove for another 10 minutes. When all’s said and done, you’ll have spent a mere 20 minutes whipping up this fiendishly fun feast for eight.


To begin, carefully pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels and set them aside. Next, unroll the crescent dough and use your fingers to gently press together the perforated seams. Cut the dough into approximately 1/4 inch strips using a pizza cutter or knife – the length of the strips isn’t crucial. Then, take the dough strips and wrap them around the hot dogs in a criss-cross pattern, being mindful not to overlap too many layers, as this can affect the baking process. Leave a small section of each mummy uncovered to accommodate the eyes later. Place all the mummies on a parchment-lined baking sheet, ensuring they’re not overcrowded. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350°F or until golden. Finally, use a small amount of mustard (or ketchup) to securely attach the candy eyes.
