  • Prepare Dinner in large saucepan as directed on package. Stir in 1 cup cracker crumbs, egg, bacon and jalapeno peppers until blended. Cool 20 min.
  • Shape into 30 balls, using scant 1/4 cup macaroni mixture for each ball. Insert 1 VELVEETA cube into center of each ball, completely enclosing VELVEETA cube. Roll in remaining cracker crumbs until evenly coated. Place in single layer on waxed paper-covered baking sheet.
  • Heat oil to 375ºF in deep fryer. Add balls, a few at a time; cook 2 min. or until golden brown. Drain well. Serve warm.

Don't Have a Deep Fryer?

Heat 3 inches of oil in large saucepan to 375ºF. Use to cook poppers as directed.

Make Ahead

Make it Easy

Use a small (1-oz.) ice cream scoop to portion the macaroni mixture for each popper.

    I made it using smoked sausage which is very hard to keep lit.

    Wow. I did not know that craft made mac and cheese!! And the most hilarious thing is the fact that it tastes TERRIBLE!!! I used this recipe but i did not use any of the products recommended by craft. It tasted way better. Oscar Mayer bacon is probably made from pigs that have never seen the sunlight. good luck!!

    While these are time consuming and messy to make, the effort is well worth the praise! These are awesome and everyone loved them! Next time I might use more jalapeno because we all felt they weren't hot enough (possibly fresh jalapeno piece with the Velveeta!). They fried up easily but made a mess of my oil and fryer. My tip: using a small 1 tablespoon scooper, pack it full then smashed the cheese cube into center (while mixture is still in scooper) adding more mac & cheese mixture to create somewhat of a ball dropping into cracker crumbs. Way too sticky to roll in hands. Somehow my recipe made 60 bite size balls - didn't look like the picture but they were really yummy!
