These prosciutto wrapped mac and cheese bites topped with Cheez-It crumbs are a perfect and easy Super Bowl snack. To prepare this recipe, fill a mini cupcake tray with proscuitto, fill with macaroni and cheese, and top with Cheez-It crumbs. The total preparation time is under an hour!
Once assembled, the mac and cheese bites go into the oven for just 15 minutes. If you are having a party you can prepare the macaroni and cheese bites in advance and then bake them later. In that case, you will want to slightly increase the cook time since the macaroni and cheese won't be warm when they go into the oven.
This recipe makes about 40 macaroni and cheese bites. I made one batch of 24 macaroni and cheese bites because I only have one mini cupcake tray, I did have plenty and macaroni and cheese left over.
I used a mini cupcake tin for this recipe. If you want to make full sized cupcakes instead, I would recommend pre-cooking the prosciutto cups for 5 minutes just so that they are extra crisp and sturdy so they can hold more macaroni and cheese.
