      Very very yummy! I used cappalletti, which I thought might make it easier to shape balls in the end. I made this recipe in stages, I made the macaroni and cheese and refrigerated it, next day I formed the balls and froze them. And there they stayed for a couple of weeks until I was ready to use them, for a Mothers day picnic. Made on the Saturday afternoon, half of them didnt make it until Sunday! We agreed with a previous reviewer that these are especially nice with a dip, the children favoured mayo, but sweet chilli sauce and spicy mango sauce were also popular! I was glad that I made these, and would make them again for friends. Thanks, Lainey!

      Made these to share at a park social we have each week, & although the group is small, there was a huge dent made in the bowl of balls I took! AN UNUSUAL & NICE TASTING FINGER FOOD, & I'm happy to keep your recipe on file for much future use! Thanks for sharing! I look forward to trying these with a variety of dips!

      I had left over mac n cheese so decided to give this fun looking recipe a try and it was great. Served with Honey mustard dipping sauce and that gave it an extra kick that we enjoyed. A different and fun appy that sure raised some interest in this house.
