Corn Dogs for Christmas

Corn Dogs was originated in America and mostly served in state fair. It symbolises celebration and fun. Which is why this Christmas I think you should all add corn dogs to your menu.
The only thing is if you decide to make them, make a big batch as your guest will be screaming for more.
What makes corn dogs so special is the batter. Every-time I make it, all I remember is eating the little batter left on the stick. The batter is so simple to make but so rewarding.
