Hot Cheetos deep-fried mac and cheese balls recipe

INGREDIENTS

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

1 cup milk (or non-dairy alternative)

1.5 cups assorted shredded cheese (I used cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan)

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp mustard powder

Salt & pepper

1 cup macaroni

For coating

Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Puffs or Crunchy

1 egg

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Vegetable oil (for frying)

Chives (for garnishing, optional)

METHOD

In a pot over the stove, add butter and flour and mix until it forms a paste – this is called a roux. Then, add your milk and stir gently until thickened.

Add garlic powder, onion powder, and mustard powder (and salt & pepper to taste if you want). Add shredded cheese.

Using KitchenAid Cordless Hand Mixer, mix over stove on lowest setting until cheese sauce is smooth and silky. (Cordless function allows you the flexibility to use the mixer anywhere in the kitchen.

Combine cheese sauce and cooked macaroni, then allow to cool and harden in the fridge for several hours.

Gently blitz Cheetos into coarse crumbs.

Scoop mac & cheese into balls (around golf ball sized), then coat in flour, egg, and then hot Cheetos.

Fry until crispy.

Garnish with chives (optional) and serve hot.

Audrey – who created the recipe to celebrate National Mac & Cheese Day – started by making mac and cheese from scratch.

In a pot, she mixed butter and flour to create a roux, then she added milk and stirred until the creamy sauce thickens.

Next she added the garlic, onion and mustard powders, along with the cheeses.

Using a KitchenAid Cordless Hand Mixer, Audrey blended the cheese over low heat until she created a silky, smooth sauce.

‘It’s a great hack using an electric mixer to get the silkiest, smoothest cheese sauce possible for an epic mac and cheese,’ she explained.
