    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!

    I not only will make this recipe again, I have been ORDERED to make it again - according to everyone that ate these poppers! I have taken them 3 times to outdoor family functions where we always use the deep fryer. I can't make enough - grownups and kids alike LOVE this recipe. Glad I found something that I will always bring to the cookouts! They are now known as "Aunt Nancy's Poppers"! Takes a while to make, and I think I need to buy one of those ice cream scoopers to help me make them into balls. A little messy for my kitchen. But all worth it for the reviews I get!!

    Very easy to make. Well worth the effort. Adults and children alike enjoyed them. This was one of the most popular of the 5 apptizers that I had made!
