These Hogwarts Sorting Hat Dogs are the perfect dish for your next Harry Potter party!
You guys, I have NO photos of our food table from the Harry Potter birthday party we threw a couple of weeks ago! I think I was lucky to get pics of the cake (coming soon!). But I can tell you exactly what we served, AND I recreated the Sorting Hat Dogs that I created for the party so I could show you how cute they are! And super simple to make, too! Simple is always a bonus during a party for me.
Along with these Sorting Hat Dogs, I also whipped up this Cheese Ball Cauldron, which looks a lot cuter on this site than mine turned out. But you could tell what it was and that’s what counts, right? I also had lots of veggies (aka Herbology Bites) to go with the cheese ball. We also served small pretzel sticks (aka Miniature Wands). I really wanted to make these Howler Envelopes, and even had a cream cheese mixture put together that was going to go into them, but just didn’t have time to get them done in the end. But aren’t they cute??
I put together a quick video to show you how simple these Sorting Hat Dogs are to make! You can also find the recipe below.
Cut hot dogs in half. Unroll crescent rolls and separate the crescent roll triangles.
Place a hot dog half at the base of the triangle and roll it in the crescent until the hot dog is covered. Tuck the dough so that it won’t pull loose while baking.
Bend the top of the triangle of dough to look like the Sorting Hat. Use a sharp knife to create eyes, a mouth, and a couple of wrinkles in the bend of the hat.
At 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until rolls are golden brown.
Serve with your favorite condiments.
Since these were so easy to put together and didn’t cook for very long, it didn’t take much time to make a few dozen for the party. I have a Keep Warm option on my over so I kept the extras in there and refilled the party platter as needed with warm sorting hats.
You can see the face is faint, but there. I think that makes it look more realistic like the Sorting Hat in the Harry Potter movies. I’m sure you could cut a little harder into the dough for a more defined face.
They are just so darn cute! AND pretty tasty, too.
