So cute and easy. Made the kids want to eat all of their dinner.

My kids loved this. They are not fans of mustard, so I cut slits in the hot dogs and inserted bacon bits for eyes. They ate every bite!

My kids range from 5 thru 25 and this is still a favorite! Make it for the nieces and nephews and all little kids that come to Auntie Dawns house!
