    Blue Peacock's Note:

    This recipe comes from a book called "Classroom Treats." This is a variation of "pigs in a blanket." The pretzel stick legs separate mature bugs from legless adolescent grubs.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F Grease two baking sheets. Unroll dough; separate along perforated lines into 24 triangles. (Spray hands with nonstick cooking spray as necessary to prevent dough from sticking to them.).

    3. 3
      For Grubs: place 1 cocktail frank on longest side of a larger triangle; fold sides over ends of franks; roll up to opposite point, pinching dough as necessary to completely cover frank.
    4. 4
      Place point side down on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 11 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheet to wire rack; cool completely.
    5. 5
      For Bugs: place 1 cocktail frank on shortest side of a smaller triangle; roll to opposite point. With point facing down, poke 3 pretzel pieces into dough along each side to make legs.
    6. 6
      Place seam side down on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining smaller triangles. Bake for 11 to 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
