Ingredients for Mummy Hot Dogs Recipe
- Crescent rolls – Grab your favorite can of crescent rolls from the grocery store to use in this super easy Halloween snack recipe.
- Hot dogs – For the best and most delicious flavor, use all beef hot dogs. But really, you can use any of your favorite hot dog weenies!
- Googly eyes – Candy google eyes make for the cutest, slightly spooky, stare from each mummy hot dog snack.
- Ketchup and mustard – You need a little ketchup and mustard to “glue” the candy eyes in place, but keep some extra on hand to dip the hot dogs in too!
How to Make Mummy Hot Dogs
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Unroll the crescent roll dough and then separate at the pre-made perforations to make four different rectangle pieces. There will be perforations at an angle in each rectangle too. Press down on those to seal them.
- Using a sharp knife, slice each rectangle horizontally to create ten strips of dough. You’ll have a total of 40 pieces left when you are done.
- Wrap four pieces of crescent roll around each hot dog to mimic the “bandages” of mummies. Only stretch the dough slightly to fit around the hot dogs, leave some space between the dough so you can still see the hot dog and have a place for eyes.
- Place each wrapped hot dog onto a large cookie sheet. Then place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until the crescent roll is golden brown and hot dogs are warmed through.
- Remove the hot dogs from the oven and then place two dots of mustard or ketchup on the space for eyes. Press candy eyeballs into the dots of condiments.
- Serve immediately with your favorite condiments!

How to Store Leftover Mummy Hot Dogs
Place leftovers into an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat, place in the microwave or oven until warmed through. Reheating in the oven will likely keep the crescent roll wrap a bit more crispy.
Is there anything I can add to mummy hot dogs?
- Yes! If you want to have cheesy version, then slice up some cheese and wrap it around the hot dog before you add the crescent roll.
- To add more flavor to the crescent roll wrap, melt some butter and add a bit of garlic. Brush the melted garlic butter onto the mummy hot dogs right after they come out of the oven!
- When wrapping the hot dogs, keep in mind that the crescent rolls will puff up while baking. Make sure the space you leave for eyeballs is large enough, even after the crescent rolls take more space.
- Use a toothpick to add condiments to the hot dog where you will attach the candy eyeballs.
- Serve on a spooky Halloween platter for extra festive and scary fun!
