Spiral Hotdogs... This is a regular for us now. I give the kids the option of spiral or octopus. They LOVE this. And everyone thinks I am the coolest for knowing how to do it, trying the spiral dog in a blanket next!
Would be adorable for an Octonauts party - For the octopus's body, remove the pepper's stem end and scoop out the white ribs and seeds. For the arms, slice a second pepper into strips. Place some dip or hummus (we used French onion dip) in a shallow bowl, and arrange the octopus as shown. Use a bit of dip and sliced black olives to give your creature eyes.
