This is perfect for those savory cravings, with delicious dough and the amazing facial features you can make. This treat is great, and perfect for siblings or random children. These spooktastic pigs in a blanket, are to die for. 

With highly recommended reviews, it’s a good thing to make with children. With it being easy to make and is very adjustable to your needs, Rainbowavacodos says “We make these for Halloween potlucks and they are always a hit. CHANGES: We’ve never added the cheese because our recipe didn’t include cheese, and they are wonderful without the cheese. We also use candy “eyes” (find them in the baking aisle at Publix), which can either be eaten with the dog or removed to avoid the extra sugar with your savory treat.” 


Most of the reviews recommend cooking the dogs for 15 minutes for perfect crust and taste. Made these last night with a sheet of dough. It was a pain cutting those strips. My changes, I used cheese dogs, used 2 strips of cheese, cut the dogs in half, covered them with mustard, then cheese, and then wrapped them. Baked at 375 for 15 min”- Jrc421
