We make these for Halloween... but tonight the kids asked for them instead of plain hot dogs... It only takes seconds to do them... so I was able to take a couple photos too....

My friend Kimi Gaines pointed out the fact that they look like her Octopus hot dogs! So consider making them either way!!!! lol... Thanks for the idea Kimi!

Enjoy!

    **** If making these on the outdoor grill... watch carefully so they don't get too blackened...) Making these on the grill is my favorite way to do them! The flavors pop and so does the creepyness of the spiders!

    Add two dots of ketsup for eyes, add two tiny dots of mustard for center of eyes. Add a dot of mustard for mouth.
