Mini Corn Dogs

These Mini Corn Dogs are super easy and fun to make! A delicious little treat on a stick, these are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser no matter the occasion!

My kids and Grandkids loved these corn dogs, said they were the best they have ever had. I really liked them too, they didn’t seem as greasy as a lot I have tried. Fast and easy recipe too. Had all ingredients in the house, I was really surprised when I found out that I had everything to make homemade corndogs on hand. I substituted honey for the sugar and skipped the black pepper and they turned out great. I made some fresh lemonade to go with it. Perfect!

I give them 5 stars because they took care of my corn dog craving and they can be great little party snacks served with regular or different types of mustards. Just use cocktail wieners or cut your hot dogs in half for appetizers. One way I got the batter to stay on better was to dip the hot dog in a little egg. Some of the batter still slid back into the bowl, but it wasn’t too bad. These corn dogs actually looked like something from the fairs at home and they tasted pretty good too. Word of advice, I accidently salted a couple of them since I always salt things after frying. It was too salty and took the corn dog flavor away.
