Mini Octopus Mac n Cheese

Mini Octopus Mac n Cheese

4 hot dogs
1 package (7-1/4 ounce) mac n cheese dinner

Cut hot dog lengthwise in half, starting each cut about 1 inch from 1 end of each hot dog. Roll each hot dog one-quarter turn and cut a second lengthwise cut, again starting about 1 inch from uncut end. (This will form the 4 legs of each octopus.) Use sharp knife or kitchen shears to cut each leg lengthwise in half, about 1 inch from uncut end, creating a total of 8 legs on each hot dog. Poke 2 holes into the uncut portion of each hot dog for the eyes.

Prepare dinner as directed on package. Meanwhile, add hot dogs to separate saucepan of boiling water; cook as directed on package, watching each hot dog turn into an octopus right before your eyes.

Spoon dinner into 4 small bowls; top each with a hot dog octopus.
