Everyone’s favorite corn dog made into the easiest mini muffins. Because everything tastes better in miniature size! 103.4 calories.
Welcome to Super Bowl week here at Damn Delicious! I’m bringing you a week of simple, party foods that are sure to impress your guests at your next football party.
On Monday, we had those apple butter pastrami sandwiches. Today I bring you these epic corn dog mini muffins.
Now, I first saw these on Iowa Girl Eats about a year ago but I just never got around to making it.
But seeing that the Super Bowl is just days away, I knew I just had to share this with you guys.
It’s so easy to make, and it’s well received by both kids and adults, especially when you dunk them in that pool of ketchup.
They’re completely addicting too. I think I was able to eat about 8 of these without even thinking! But no worries. They’re only 100 calories each!
