Fried Mac-N-Cheese-N-Hot Dog Balls

I've bragged about making healthy, filling snacks for my kid after school. This one is ...well...filling but not low in fat or calories. Either way, my son and his friends love it!

    Tried these and they failed miserably. I am not sure what kind of mac and cheese you use, but I used the boxed kind made the night before and it was nearly impossible to form into a ball. The few that did work fell apart as soon as a threw them in the oil.
