one of the biggest hits of this 
Manhattan Halloween Party
...adorable all beef hot dogs enrobed in pastry
and resting in a coffin filled with chocolate pebbles.

....Hallo-weenie  Mummies - 
All beef kosher hot dogs wrapped in 
pastry “shroud” with mustard dotted eyes  

plenty of options for how to make these easy treats available on the internet, - we simply cut strips from refrigerated crescent rolls and wrapped around the all beef kosher hot dogs leaving a space for the face.  Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.   Can substitute kielbasa, pre-cooked Italian sausage, chicken or turkey or vegetarian franks with equal results.  Can also use other bread products and even strips of filo dough to wrap the Hallo-weenie Mummies.
