How To Make:

  2. Cut the Crescent rolls into long strips.

  3. Wrap the hot dogs in the crescent roll strips and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.

  4. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the crescent roll is a desired golden color.

  5. In the meantime, using your star shaped cookie cutter, 'cut' the cheese.

  6. Once the hot dogs are done cooking, add the star cheese on top of each skewer.

  7. Add to the decorated tin.

  8. Serve and enjoy!

Decorating Your Tin:
