  3. Using pizza cutter or knife, slice breadstick dough into a long strip (1/2″) and wrap it around the hot dog in a spiral shape until you reach the top, leaving gaps in between each spiral. Repeat with the rest of the hot dogs and lay them on the baking sheet.

4. Bake hot dogs for about 20 minutes, or until the bread dough is golden brown.

5. While the hot dogs are baking, use a star cookie cutter to cut out stars from the cheese slices.

6.  Let the hot dogs cool and then place 1 cheese star at the top of each hot dog in the part of the skewer that’s sticking out of the top.

7.  Display the hot dogs using  styrofoam so they can stick straight up like firecrackers.
