How to make it

  • You will need to cut each hot dog, starting about 1/2 way up the hot dog.
  • Make a slice through the hot dog, then turn over and make another slice through the hot dog.
  • Place in sauce pan and bring to boil. Boil until hot dog is fully cooked and the "legs" have separated.
  • Remove from sauce pan with a pair of tongs and place upright on plate. We try to make ketchup eyes on the octopus, but sometimes they slide right off.

    Yes, I made these for one of my Halloween parties...The kids loved them! This year, I cut them all the way through and then boiled them-they looked like worms and were a big hit! Thanks!
