    babybuffalo's Note:

    Whether you serve them as children's finger food or cocktail-party nibbles, these miniature mac-and-cheese cupcakes are downright adorable. They're so easy to fix the kids can help you with most of the work, too. In my tests, the panko crust worked only for the miniature cupcakes. When I tried it with regular-size muffin tins, the cupcakes got stuck. If you must use a regular-size muffin tin, skip the panko and use cupcake liners. From and Meghan Pembleton.

      I've also added 1/2 packet of cooked bacon pieces. It came out lovely. It's such a novel idea - lovely for picnics.

      Very nice. The recipe made over 40 miniature cupcakes. I sprinkled Panko on the top of each mini muffin and then drizzled just a tiny bit of butter on top of that before baking. An inexpensive appetizer that seemed to intrigue everyone. I think these taste best served warm, rather than at room temperature.

      I have e been making these for a couple of years now The men and the kids love them, not many are left for the ladies.
      I made them ahead of time in miniature tart pans, cooked them and then freeze them. They heat up very well. The changes I make are to add bacon , sun-dried tomatoes parsley and top with a little more cheese. thanks for posting
