Pigs in a Snowman

Pigs in a blanket is a true comfort food from my childhood. My grandkids are at my house right now and I wanted to make something special that they could help with, besides cookies. I thought of pigs in the blanket, but with a twist. I'm going to cut the hot dogs into bite sized pieces, in graduated sizes, wrap them in the bread dough to make a smowman head, torso, and bottom. I'm not sure what to stick into the head to make the snowmen faces though, maybe little BB-sized balls of dough for the eyes, a little dough cone for the nose, and a curves snake of dough for a smiling mouth. Other ideas for the eyes, mouth and nose are welcome. It should of lot of fun.

Bits of black olive would make "coal" for eyes, buttons, etc...

While you are at it make a couple of hot "dog" buns, take a look!

Grand idea. I can't see the link as I'm at lunch, at work and there's firewall that won't let me access that site. I'll check it out at home though. Thanks.
