Mini Corn Dog Muffins

I saw this idea on Pinterest to make these Mini Corn Dog Muffins, & I actually tried them with Jiffy Corn Bread Mix & they turned out awful. The muffins were dense & the hot dogs sunk to the bottom. I was so bummed because my kids eat mini corn dogs all the time. I buy the big box at Sam’s Club & they just inhale them. I really would like to be able to make them at home & now I can! My inspiration for these came from Iowa Girl Eats. I just don’t keep corn meal at my house that often, but I know if I have this mix in my house, they will be perfect every time!


I cannot say enough good things about this Shirley J Corn Bread Mix! It’s sweet, light, & fluffy, yet not dry & mealy like other corn bread can be. It’s got the perfect corn meal texture with a puffy quality. Plus the rise on these muffins are insane! Like for real; they peak beautifully! Check out the extra regular sized muffins I made; TALL MUFFINS!
