DIRECTIONS

  • 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 and/or red 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.
