The Flamin’ Hot Cheetos somehow evolved into its own food group. And it is a delicious snack.
There is nothing better than these Flamin’ Hot Mozzarella Sticks if you like the combination of crunch, heat, and cheesiness of mozzarella cheese sticks.
The Halloween Witch Fingers are another name for them. The delectable treat is ideal as a finger meal for Halloween, whether entertaining visitors in your home or staying in and watching your favorite scary movies all by yourself.
Witch’s fingers are a simple and convenient option for a snack that can be eaten with either ranch dressing or marinara sauce.
On TikTok and everywhere else on the globe, that is equally true. Everything from Hot Cheetos waffles to Hot Cheetos fried chicken to Hot Cheetos doughnuts can be found by scrolling through the #hotcheetos video tag.
These recipes range from ground-breaking to downright revolting, and it can be hard to distinguish between them. However, one trend that genuinely drew our attention—Hot Cheetos mozzarella sticks—is a delicious recipe to ignore.
It’s understandable why the combination is dominating TikTok. Why not combine two snack items that are both cheesy and crunchy and ultimately make you feel bad about yourself?
The final product is also red, which makes for excellent material. It’s understandable why this snack’s YouTube recipe from Simple and Delish by Canan has received more than 165,000 views.
We realized we had to attempt producing things ourselves, given how much Cheetos material has been published in the past. Here’s what happened.
The Recipe of the Flamin Hot Cheetos Mozzarella Sticks
Your components should come first. You’ll also need a medium-sized saucepan, a lot of paper towels, and many dishes in addition to the items mentioned below (more on that in a second).
· One pack of mozzarella sticks
· One egg
· Approximately 1 cup of all-purpose flour
· At least 2-3 cups of vegetable oil
· One bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos
· A blender, food processor, or a Ziploc bag, and something heavy
· Bread crumbs (optional)
The first thing is to crush Cheetos roughly half of the bag of Cheetos into fine Cheetos dust. You can accomplish that by blender or food processor, or if you don’t have a blender or food processor (it’s embarrassing, I know), you can put the Cheetos in a Ziploc bag and smash them with anything hard to ground them down. It is similar to how graham crackers are crushed to make pie crust.
Next, arrange your flour, one egg, and the fine Cheetos dust on a platter. Next, get your mozzarella sticks out and begin rolling them one at a time.
Roll each string cheese stick in the beaten egg wash, then in the flour, then in the beaten egg wash once more, and lastly in the crushed Cheetos. Ensure that each stick is completely covered in a flaky, red crust and has enough Cheetos on it. When they are all prepared, it is time to fry them.
Vegetable oil should be hot and bubbling before adding your coated hot cheese puff sticks one at a time. Most of the time, you want to cook them until the Cheetos have formed a flaky, red crust, but remember that cooking them for longer results in meltier cheese inside.
And If you don’t like eating oily snacks, the string cheese sticks can be baked in the oven instead of fried. Prepare this snack food as directed up to the point when you put it into the air fryer. Set them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper to bake the coated string cheese sticks. Put in the oven and set the timer for 6-8 minutes.
After that, place those large, cheesy fellas on a dish and let them cool. Additionally, turn on a fan because, in my personal experience, your entire apartment will be filled with an oppressive cloud of Hot Cheetos smoke.
How excellent are they??
With a snack food like this, success is difficult to quantify. The fact is that cheese sticks and hot Cheetos are both trendy snacks. With this much cheese in it, it isn’t easy not to like it.
Nothing about this tastes particularly like a Cheetos. It only has the flavor of a mozzarella stick with the addition of a mild, spicy flavor at the very end.
Therefore, everything depends on what you expect. Don’t attempt it if you’re a Cheetos fan and thought this would be a revolutionary snack. Don’t disappoint yourself in such a way. However, if you anticipate the combination to be disgusting and want a pleasant surprise, go ahead and taste.
The Final Verdict of this recipe
Regardless of flavor, this snack food looks fantastic. They don’t resemble food, which is both fascinating and scary. The Hot Cheetos mozzarella sticks become a rich shade of red, which may be a terrific way to surprise your party guests.
However, creating them is a laborious and, honestly, unpleasant process. This writer’s eyes were watering, his sinuses were screaming, and his flat smelled like fried Cheetos at the end of the workday. It takes a lot of work to produce these cheese sticks, and they indeed leave their imprint on the kitchen.
In conclusion, if you’re a true fan of Hot Cheetos, go for it. Maybe just let someone else cook them for you if you don’t want to smell like them for the next 24 hours.
