One Halloween lover's boo-worthy twist on an old classic

Beth Jackson Klosterboer loves Halloween. For this blogger (whose many Halloween creations can be found at Hungry Happenings), Halloween isn't just a simple holiday -- it's an excuse to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary! She took some time to share her detailed step-by-step tutorials for an inspired twist on the good old-fashioned kid favorite, the corn dog. Turn your kid's munchies into little creepy-crawlies in minutes!

Degree of Difficulty: Easy


  • mini corn dogs (use at least 9 per centipede, but you can use many more)
  • chow mein noodles or potato sticks
  • ketchup
  • baking sheet
