Mini Corn Dog Bites

I have been watching football games all week and looking for awesome appetizers to suit your college budget without compromising fun, coolness, and of course, taste!  These little bites are about the easiest thing I have ever made, and you get the classic 'corn dog' flavor without the fry or the fat.


These take about 10 minutes to throw together, and 8 minutes to bake! Doesn't get any better than this unless your team wins the trophy!

(Another great recipe from Baking With Blondie blog)
