Prepare a Basic Sweet Bun Dough
Chocolate chips or olives and cheese for the eyes and nose
For the body:
Take about 70g of the basic sweet bun dough (depending on the size of your hotdog), flatten into a rectangle.
Place a hot dog on the dough and roll the dough around the hot dog leaving excess dough on one end to make the head.
Pinch a small tail on the other end of the dog.
Pinch the dough together behind the head to form the neck.
For the ears:
Take about 20g of dough and roll into a rope that is very thin in the center.
Lay the rope over the pinched neck and flatten the ends to make the ears.
For the legs:
Take about 2 pieces of 10g each of dough and roll the into ropes that are thin in the center but have small balls on the ends.
Place these under the dog to make the feet. Repeat steps to make as many dogs as desired.
Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper
Spray some cooking oil on the dough and loosely cover with cling wrap
put in a warm place to prove for 45 mins (I put in the oven with light turn on)
Bake at 190 degree C for 12 mins or till golden brown in the middle of the oven.
Brush with butter and leave to cool completely
When it is completely cool, you can use cheese, chocolate chips or black beans, olives for eyes and nose.
