Carnival Corn Dogs


It’s not quite carnival season yet, but here is a great recipe to hold you over until you can get all of the tasty treats at the carnival including curly fries, cotton candy, funnel cakes, and my FAVORITE corn dogs. I would love to get comments about this recipe and if it is really easy to make 🙂 This recipe was adapted from the website Chef-In-Training.
