I’m no food connoisseur, but after picking my son up from school I was looking for a quick snack and my son said NO to hotdogs…until I made one of these for his brother. Then he had to have his own hotdog octopus and they both devoured their octopuses. :)
After you heat up the hot dog, cut the hot dog in half lengthwise, stopping just before the end to make a head. Rotate the hot dog and cut in half again (so now you have 4 legs). Then carefully cut each quarter in half again to make 8 legs.
I honestly don’t know where I found this but am so glad my boys enjoyed it so much!
