I have had these at The Chessecake Factory years ago. I saw a segment on Foodnet work a while back and decided I would give it a try. My kids loved it. They love anything with mac n cheese, plus anything fried..bingo instant success!! They are good alone or dipped in a marinara sauce of choice. Cheescake factory does a marinara mixed with a cream sauce..yummm.

Note..use your favorite mac n cheese recipe. The cheesier the better!! I will post a few links.Even a great way to use left over mac n cheese.
