My kids were seriously impressed with these! In fact I heard “This is the best thing ever, Mom.” 🙂 If you happen to have any left over, they do well reheated and are still yummy. Enjoy!

Did you know?

It is a little difficult to pinpoint the origins of the corn dog. Some believe they are the creations of German sausage makers who arrived in Texas only to discover the local people didn’t much like the kinds of sausages they were making back in Germany. So, they fried a hot dog sausage in a thick cornmeal batter. Others say it was created at the Pronto Pup in Portland, Ore., in 1941. Then, there is a patent dating back to 1927 for a holding apparatus that appeared to have been used to impale things and deep fry them … like a corn dog.

So, from where did the corn dog come? We don’t know, but how about making a batch of mini corn dogs that come from your kitchen?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
