Reviews for Miniature Corn Dogs
"This is the first recipe from the Taste of Home website that I haven't liked. It feels like this recipe was a waste of time, a waste of a mess, and a waste of ingredients. The batter wouldn't stick to the wieners, even though I dried them on paper towels first. The batter came right off in the frier and I ended up with half coated dogs and several crumbs, even though I followed exactly what the recipe said to do. I will not be making this again."
