Mac & cheese is a favorite children’s food and it can be healthy too! We’ve made these mac & cheese muffins for several parties and it is always a big hit. Using whole wheat pasta, low fat milk & sharp cheddar cheese (ours were also all organic), these mac & cheese muffins have about half calories and fat of a traditional baked mac & cheese recipe.
Kids will love being able to eat mac & cheese with their hands. The recipe can also be made ahead and then reheated the day of the party. And don’t forget because they are muffin/cupcake shaped you can wrap them in a liner (after baking) that coordinates with your theme! We also love any excuse to use our cupcake stand.
