Our Cheetos Flamin' Hot Mac-n-Cheese Balls are an easy, fire-y party snack that is guaranteed to be a hit!

Cooking Instructions

  • Clip a deep fryer thermometer to a large heavy bottom pan filled with oil over medium high heat.

  • Line a baking sheet with paper towels; set aside.

  • In a large bowl combine the crushed CHEETOS® Crunchy FLAMIN’ HOT® Cheese Flavored Snacks and Panko crumbs.

  • In a small bowl beat together eggs and milk until just combined.

  • Scoop out about 2 heaping tablespoons of mac and cheese and roll it into a 2-inch ball.

  • Place formed ball on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mac and cheese.

  • Working one at a time, dip mac and cheese balls in the egg mixture, then dredge it through the CHEETOS® Crunchy FLAMIN’ HOT® Cheese Flavored Snacks and Panko mixture, pressing to coat.

  • Working in batches as needed, slowly lower the balls into the hot oil and deep-fry until the Panko crumbs are visibly golden and the coating is crispy, about 1 minute.

Serve & enjoy!

Stir-Ins (optional)

  • To easily form the mac and cheese balls, make sure you start with well chilled mac and cheese so it easily comes together as you form it.
  • Depending on the size of your pot, deep fry the mac and cheese balls in batches to avoid over-crowding.
  • Additionally, any size pot will work just make sure that the oil level clears the mac and cheese balls at least ¾ of inch.
  • These are best served the day they are made, but if they cool down more than you prefer, you can quickly reheat them.
