Directions

  1. Place macaroni and cheese into the refrigerator until firm, about 3-4 hours.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop, roll macaroni and cheese into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch balls, forming about 12.
  4. Working one at a time, dip balls into eggs, then dredge in Panko, pressing to coat.
  5. Working in batches, add balls to the Dutch oven and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with coconut flakes
