  • Baking Sheet
  • Cutting board & knife


  • 12 hot dogs (2 packs) I recommend Applegate hot dogs
  • 1 8 oz can refrigerated crescent rolls I recommend Annie's crescent rolls
  • 1 jar capers You'll need about 48 capers


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
    Drain the capers and set aside on a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
    (optional) Line the baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Cut off the ends of the hot dogs. Then cut hot dogs in half crosswise. (each hot dog will make 2 "spiders")
    Keeping the middle intact, make 3 slits on both ends of the hot dogs so that there are 4 "spider legs" per side. (see above for photo)
  • Once the hot dogs have been cut, take out the crescent rolls. Cut into strips about 1 inch wide and 2-3 inches long.
    Wrap one piece of dough around the middle of each hot dog piece, pinching to seal. Place on the baking sheet seam side down then press on 2 capers as "eyes".
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately and enjoy!
