Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Use a paper towel to dry hot dogs if wet from packaging. Having a dry dog is important to making sure the dough doesnt slip or glide.
Using a pastry cutter or pizza cutter, slice each crescent triangle into thin strips.
Pull and stretch the crescent dough strips before wrapping them around each hot dog. Do your best to keep the seams on the back and tuck any loose dough under the back/bottom of the hot dog.
Near the top of the dog, leave a small opening for the eyes.
Bake hot dog mummies for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool before using a toothpick dipped into mustard to add eyes or ketcup for red eyes.
