homemade corn dogs

One of my favorite foods at a state fair is corn dogs. Today I decided make my own since this will probably be the only way I will ever have another homemade corn dog. We haven't been to a state fair in so long I can't remember the last one I went to. And probably won't be going to another any time soon if at all. I've added a little heat to mine, just because I like a little heat. If you don't then don't add the jalapeno or the cayenne. They will still be good! Both kids and adults will enjoy. These were super easy and turned out just right. Hope you enjoy!
