Macaroni and Cheese Balls

With ramadan fast approaching, I am all ready to prep lots of make and freeze snacks. During the holy month, we try to keep cooking to a minimum seeing as we can’t actually try the food we prep while fasting. So I make these small snacks that I can just bake or fry for the kids.

Macaroni and cheese balls

The kids are fasting all their fasts this year, so I have been making lists of their favourite foods, that they want me to cook during the month. It’s fun for them to sit down as the sun sets and open their fasts with something they requested. Something new every day. It’s totally exciting for them.

These macaroni and cheese balls incorporates their favourite dinner in snack form. Does it really get any better than that?
