1In a large bowl, combine pancake and waffle mix and root beer soda; mix well. Cut each hotdog into three pieces or 1 1/2 inch pieces.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Dip hot dog chunks into batter, coating evenly, then place in oil and cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden on all sides. Place on a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with remaining hot dog chunks. Serve immediately.
