As I searched for things to cook with my little ladies this past Children Cooking Class, i came across pictures of macaroni cupcakes on the net. Everything small and individually packaged is so appealing to me.  I thought they were so cute that i decided to make some. They were enjoyed so much that I thought I would share.

Ingredients for about 12-20 mini Macaroni and Cheese:

  • 1/2 box of elbow pasta
  • 3 1/2 cup of mixed cheese ( 1 used 2 cups of cheddar and 1 cup of parmesan)
  • 1/2 cup od milk
  • 2 tbsp of buttter
  • 1 tbsp of roasted garlic demarle mixture 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of flour
  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Or for a simpler, fastest way, place the pasta into the large round mold, cover it with water and cook them for 13 minutes.
  2. Drain the pasta and set them aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, make a roux ( melt the butter and when the butter has melted, add the flour. Cook the flour until the mixture becomes brown.)
