  • round pastry tip or small round cookie cutter
  • knife
  • chopstick


  • Bread rolls
  • Hot dogs Cooked
  • Candy googley eyes
  • Sliced cheddar cheese


  • 1. Use your round pastry tip to cut out a hole in your bread roll.
  • 2. Cut your hot dog in length to fit inside the bread roll.
  • 3. Insert a chopstick twice through the hot dog to create nostrils.
  • 4. Insert your hot dog in the bread roll.
  • 5. Cut triangle cheese for ears. Add to top of the roll. We just stuck it down.
  • 6. Add your googley eyes on top.


If you are making these to be eating right away, no need to really "stick" down the ears or eyes, we didn't. My kids just picked them off. If you want them to stick, try a tiny bit of piping gel or icing that dries hard.
