Homemade Mini Corn Dogs

I had a package of hot dog sitting in the fridge for a few days.  I kept meaning to pick up some hot dog buns for them, but kept forgetting.  I never remember to stop at the grocery store on the way home since I do not pass one. 

Well, forgetting for the third day in a row, I decided to go in a different direction with these darn hot dogs.  I made corn dogs.  Mini corn dogs.  I never made them before but they were fast and easy.  Taylor loved them.  He had Noah over and when Noah saw them he said "I don't like what my mom's gonna make for dinner, can I ask if I can eat over?"  What a little cutie pie.  The recipe is from allrecipes.  It is for regular corn dogs on a stick, but I made mini corn dogs instead.  I cut my hot dogs into thirds and rolled them around in a pinch of flour and then in to the cornmeal batter.
