My girls love corndogs and I am always looking for easy, quick snacks to feed them when they come home from school to tide them over until dinner. We are not big “snack food” people, so I need REAL food that is easy and small enough to be a “snack.” Well, today I found THE perfect one! And they are FABULOUS!
This morning while perusing Pinterest I ran across this Pin from MoneySavingMom.com:
My first thought…. I CAN DO THAT IN THE CAKE POP MAKER!!
I jumped in the car and headed to Winn Dixie for the ingredients – Jiffy mix, eggs, milk, and hotdogs. It doesnt get any easier than that!
I mixed up the Jiffy mix just exactly by the box, and cubed the hot dog into tiny little pieces.
I put the pieces of hot dog into the microwave for 30 seconds – just to cook them a little more. Then I poured the pieces directly into the Jiffy mix. I used 2 boxes of Jiffy mix for this first round, and three hot dogs. Next time I will use four.
I spooned a heaping teaspoon of the mix into each of the holes in my Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker, and cooked for THREE minutes. They were perfect.
Paired up with another favorite – Ore Idea Tater Tots – with some Ketchup and a glass of milk, and we have a perfect, nutritious snack in under 10 minutes!
These would also be very easy to make in large batches and freeze in the Zip Lock Snack Size freezer bags for the girls to grab on the go. Also easy to pack in lunches – there is no mess!
Thanks to MoneySavingMom for the inspiration and Baby Cakes for my favorite cooking tool in the world!
