Why I Love This Recipe

Make as many as you need.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 circus peanut
1 caramel square
Yellow icing in a tube
Green tinted coconut
Cut-up green gumdrop (optional)
Orange juice or lemonade concentrate
1 baked cupcake
White icing


For the bun, cut a wedge in the circus peanut. If the caramel is soft, roll it into a hot dog shape. If it's hard, first soften it in your hand or in a microwave for a few seconds.

Caution: the caramel can get hot!

Place the "hot dog" in the bun and squirt on a squiggly line of yellow icing.

Garnish with green gumdrop "relish," if you wish.

Frost the cupcake with white icing, place the hot dog on top, and sprinkle on nonpareils.
