Fun Food Tricks ~ Mini Octopus Macaroni & Cheese

This is one of many fun food trick posts, check out my main post to see the links to all the other ones.

What You Need

1 pkg.  (7-1/4 oz.) KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner

Make It

CUT wieners lengthwise in half, starting each cut about 1 inch from 1 end of each wiener. Roll each wiener 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 in each wiener. Poke 2 holes into the uncut portion of each wiener for the eyes.

PREPARE Dinner as directed on package. Meanwhile, add wieners to separate saucepan of boiling water; cook as directed on package, watching each wiener turn into an octopus right before your eyes.

SPOON Dinner into 4 small bowls; top each with a wiener octopus.
