    Love your recipes. I know lots of vegan cheese, but haven’t heard of fyt and can’t find it when I look it up. Out of curiosity, what is this?

  2. Cassie Thuvan Tran says

    I can totally picture this at a kids party or even a birthday party with lots of young cousins and relatives, LOL! The kids will just chase around the house and try to sneak more and more of these into their mouths! Anyways, this really is a great snack to pack for yourself, too. Mac and cheese can be enjoyed at all ages (and sizes since we’re talking about mini cups to go!)!

  3. John Hernandez says

    Cant wait to try! I noticed the recipe only calls for 4 oz of elbow macaroni and 6oz of cheese.
    I’m trying to make a full box of macaroni (16oz) so should I use 24oz of cheese? just want to make sure I get the correct proportions.
    also how long do the cups stay fresh if they’re refrigerated after baking?
