In deep fryer or 3-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F.

Unroll dough, and cut lengthwise into 4 strips, then cut crosswise into 8 rows, making 32 squares.

Roll piece of dough around each cheese curd (no larger than 1 inch); stretch dough, and press to seal edges and completely cover cheese curd.

Fry cheese curds 8 at a time, about 1 minute, turning occasionally until dough is completely cooked through and deep golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and keep warm.

Thread 4 cheese curds on each wooden skewer. Serve immediately with condiments.

Customize your cheese curds by serving with various dippers--spicy, sweet or both!

Can't find cheese curds in your grocery store? Use mozzarella sticks instead OR your favorite variety of cheese stick, such as Colby Jack, pepper Jack, Cheddar.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
