An Excerpt from The Halloween Creativity Book


Hot dogs

Puff pastry



You will need:

Rolling pin

Parchment paper

Baking sheet


  1. Wrap thin strips of ready-made puff pastry around hot dogs to look like bandages.
  2. Place them on parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  3. Ask a grown-up to bake them in the oven for about 30 minutes, following the instruction s on the pastry pack.
  4. When they are cooked cut them in half crosswise and add a dab of ketchup to the chopped end to look like blood.
For another take on mummy themed hotdogs, check out Long Island mom Tara of Secrets of a Momaholic. If you liked this tricky treat find tons more on our Halloween microsite including this "craftivity" from Barron's Modeling Clay Spooky Creatures.
