Capital Region BOCES Communications Manager Jodie Orzechowski’s preschooler really loved the idea of making corn dogs, even though he never had one before. Knowing that both of her children (she has a fourth-grader as well) like hot dogs and corn muffins, separately, Jodie thought she’d give this creative kitchen combo activity a try!

It was easy enough for her kids to crack the egg, pour the milk and mix everything together. Jodie assisted with spooning the corn muffin batter into the mini muffin cups while the kids went to work on the hot dogs.

This recipe took about 25 minutes from start to finish, and Jodie’s children loved the way they tasted!
