A quick and festive snack featuring Country Ribbon Corn Dogs dressed up as Santa! And Rudolph!
This cuteness. It’s irresistible!
This cuteness is my 334th reason why being an adult does NOT suck – you can play with your food and nobody will be there to yell at you! In fact, those people that yelled at you for it when you were 6, now think that this is the most adorable corn dog, everrrrr! And that their grandkids are SO lucky to have a Mom with cute ideas. Really?! These are the same people that grounded me for eating the entire middle of the bread so that I could make a warm home for my mini dolls! I mean, I know it looked like mice came in and attacked a few loaves, but still!
I know, I agree, that’s not as cute as making corn dogs look like Santa.
Country Ribbon Corn Dogs, found at Sam’s Club, challenged me to take a few dogs and make ’em festive. NO problemo! I can definitely do that. Gimme some cream cheese, some condiments, some veggies, and we are ready for take off.
I first headed to Sam’s Club to pick up a box of the Country Ribbon Corn Dogs which were priced very, very well!
After getting home, I gathered the few ingredients that I needed and got to work.
I used some mini peppers to make his hat and lots of whipped cream cheese to go around that hat, on top of it, and a bit more to create his beard. Ketchup and mustard for eyes and lips, and voila! Santa Claus is coming to toooooown!
Since Santa looked lonely, I decided to make his buddy, Rudolph, by using some pretzels, cream cheese, mustard and ketchup. I thought he came out incredibly cute.
Seriously, my kids went wild.
Ana didn’t want to eat Rudolph because she felt bad for him – she knows his True Hollywood Story – but Aleksandra was all about his antlers, and she made sure to eat those first.
The Country Ribbon Corn Dogs are really simple to cook – just put them in the microwave and wait a minute or two for a delicious and lightly seasoned corn dog. I waited for them to cool off before I started to decorate them because the cream cheese, as well as the condiments, would have melted right off if I had done it while they were still hot.
But, hey, don’t let me stop you from just dunking that dog into ketchup and swallowing it whole. It’s all good. No mcjudgies around these parts.
