Holy Batdogs! I know the kids are just going to go crazy over these Batdogs I created for them. For six of the kids this will be their first Halloween party over here, that's how crazy things have been in our family, six more babies in last 2 years alone. One of my nephews is a huge Batman fan coupled with the fact Ms. Katty from Kattyskitchen posted a Batdad video on my FB wall the other day, I just couldn't Batman get out of my head.
I was in Trader Joe's with the biggest kid around here (Hot Dog Dude) and when he spotted mini hot dogs he threw them in the cart faster than I don't know what. They sat in the fridge for a least a week, all the while he kept reminding me I needed to do something with those hot dogs. That is when it occurred to me they would fit in perfectly on my diabolical Halloween menu.
First thing you need to do is heat up the bat oven to 350 degrees F.
Secondly, open a roll of crescent roll dough and unroll the whole thing in one sheet on your cutting board. Cut the dough into 2-inch strips and then in 2-inch squares and then cut the squares in half on the diagonal. Lay the hot dog on the triangle as pictured and wrap up the cape and pinch it securely. Place the hot dogs with the small side of the cape down on the baking tray lined with parchment paper or sprayed with no-stick spray. Wrap the rest of the hot dogs the same way. Bake for 5 minutes, turn them over and bake 5 more minutes until the cape is browned.
While the Batdogs are in the oven make the caped crusaders masks. Cut 1/4-inch or so off of a large sized pitted black olive, the side without the large opening. Then stand the olive on the cutting board and cut a slit down the side. Then turn the olive so the slit is towards the backside and cut a v-shaped notch in the front of the olive. Place the olive masks on the Batdogs and pipe mustard eyes on with a little mustard placed in a piping bag.
My two kids disposed of those Batdogs faster than Batman rids Gotham of crime. I'm sure the kids are going to love them too on Saturday. Sometime I wonder who likes these parties more, the kids or me.
I just wanted to thank you guys for your continued support of this little hobby of mine and to let you know I'm having some major technical difficulties with the site and just short on time and energy all the way around in life and probably won't be posting anymore or at least not until after the holidays are over or my clone is ready.
