This is a fun way to serve the classic mac and cheese. Cheddar cheese is melted and formed into crisp waffle cone and mac and cheese is poured in. I made this for a few kids and they loved it...gotta love cheese though.

  • Sprinkle Cheddar cheese onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges start to brown and cheese is bubbling, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Cut melted cheese into squares and form into cones. Freeze cones for 5 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain and return pasta to pot. Mix milk, butter, pepperoni, salt, and cheese packet into pasta until evenly combined.

  • Fill cheese cones with macaroni and cheese.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I love the idea of the cheese cone and for kids I'll even give you the boxed mac n cheese. But can you just imagine using those cheese cones for a party bite? Made a tad smaller they could be filled with almost anything from salad to broccoli with cheese to ham salad. Great idea Poker Mike!

Made 10 servings and used only 1 tsp salt. Still too salty. Although the idea is cute it is very messy when eating.

My family and I enjoyed this meal. Making the cones was a little tricky. I would recommend having paper towels on hand to soak up oils from the cooked cheese prior to making the cones.

The idea is neat put it's not really practical in my opinion. First of all how can the recipe say '5 servings' when you can only make 2 cones from the 5 oz of cheese (at least that's what they did in the video). Per one of the reviews I patted the excess grease from both sides of the melted cheese as it cooled. After rolling the cones it would be a good idea to put something in the end of them (like a slender cup or small water bottle) to keep them from collapsing in the freezer. But if you don't they won't be ruined. They'll just be a bit more awkward to deal with when you're trying to fill them. Speaking of filling them... They don't really hold that much but I guess it would depend on how fat you rolled the cones. In any case by the time you're done with the whole thing you've probably had enough. Lastly serve them immediately after filling them. I filled my daughter's cone and called her down for dinner while I made mine. (I had to stand hers up in a mug so the filling wouldn't fall out.) She came down almost immediately and hers was sagging under its own weight. The warm filling started to soften the cheese cone it quickly lost structural integrity. Sadly she had to eat hers with a fork because it was starting to fall apart. Serve with plenty of paper towels or wrap the cones in a paper towel or two. Even though I patted the excess off there was still plenty left. I really wanted to like this recipe but it just didn't work out.
