Mum shares her VERY simple trick for making 32 DIY ‘puffy dog’ snacks for just $8 – and the whole family loves them
- A mum has revealed how to make puffy dogs for a fraction of the price of a box
- The mum said she couldn’t fathom forking out $7 for a box of the snacks
- She spent $8.80 on ingredients and said she could make three boxes worth
A savvy mum has revealed how she makes her kids’ favourite snacks for a fraction of the price.
The mum couldn’t justify spending $7 on a box of ‘puffy dogs’ – frankfurts wrapped in puff pastry – at the supermarket so decided to make her own.
She ended up spending $8.80 on making 32 DIY dogs and still had frankfurts and pastry left over for next time.
To make them she cut the pastry into squares and wrapped the sausages in them before placing them on an oven tray, brushing them with egg and baking until brown.

‘I would’ve had enough to make about 32 of these and still have pastry left over for a few other things,’ she wrote in a Facebook post.
And the treats went down well with her family, according to the mum, who said her three-year-old ‘devoured’ five of the puffy dogs.
Others offered their variations on the meal which include adding cheese, barbecue or tomato sauce, mustard and salami.
