Make the cup-a-soup as per the packet instructions. Divide between two bowls.
Cut the hot dog in half. From the cut side cut longways to create 8 'legs'. Stand on a plate with the legs spread, don't worry as it heats up they become more flexable and look more like an octopus. Heat for 30 second in the microwave. If required heat a second time to make sure hot all the way through.
