Instead of using bread crumbs, this fried mac and cheese snack is entirely coated in crushed up Cheetos. From The Vulgar Chef, the Cheetos Crusted Mac n' Cheese Donuts are only really referred to as donuts due to their circular shape.
The food blogger placed the macaroni and cheese into a donut shaped mold and froze it for a few hours. Afterwards he dipped the cheesy ring into egg wash before dipping the whole thing in crushed Cheetos and eventually frying.
If you are going to try to replicate this fried mac and cheese recipe at home, you might want to experiment a bit with the freezing and frying method, as The Vulgar Chef noted his were still a little cold.
