What You Need to Make Firework Hot Dogs

  • Hot Dogs – You can use any of your favorite hot dogs. I prefer bun length and turkey hot dogs are my favorite!
  • Pillsbury Crescent Roll- It is premade and all you have to do is, roll it out, pinch together and cut into strips.
  • Cheese– You can use your favorite cheese just make sure it’s hard enough to cut into the star shapes (which is why I love cheddar cheese)
  • Skewers – Longer skewers work best

Helpful Tips

  • You can put these into a large aluminum pan with a chafing fuel can under to keep these warm just know it may melt the cheese.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days and reheated in the oven.

Servings 8


  • Long Skewers
  • Mini Star Cookie Cutter


  • 8 bun length hot dogs
  • 1 can Crescent rolls 8 count
  • 4 oz. Sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz. Monterey jack cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • On a cutting board, roll out the crescent roll dough, and press the seams together.
  • Use a pizza cutter to divide the crescent roll sheet into 8 strips.
  • Fold each strip at half, and wind a crescent strip around each hot dog.
  • Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes, until a light golden brown.
  • Take the cheese, and slice in half, then in half again. You want wide enough sections to press a mini star cookie cutter into, and they need to be about 1/2 inch thick to go onto the skewer.
  • Cut out star cheese shapes using a miniature star cookie cutter.
  • Run a skewer through each hot dog, and add a cheese star to the top.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
