Prepare Dinner in large saucepan as directed on package. Stir in 1 cup cracker crumbs, egg, bacon and jalapeno peppers until blended. Cool 20 min.

Shape into 30 balls, using scant 1/4 cup macaroni mixture for each ball. Insert 1 VELVEETA cube into center of each ball, completely enclosing VELVEETA cube. Roll in remaining cracker crumbs until evenly coated. Place in single layer on waxed paper-covered baking sheet.

Heat oil to 375 degrees F in deep fryer. Add balls, a few at a time; cook 2 min. or until golden brown. Drain well. Serve warm.

Tip 1:
Don't Have a Deep Fryer?
Heat 3 inches of oil in large saucepan to 375 degrees F. Use to cook mac bites as directed.

Tip 2:
Make Ahead
Prepare mac bites as directed but do not cook. Refrigerate up to 4 hours before cooking as directed.

Tip 3:
Make it Easy
Use a small (1-oz.) ice cream scoop to portion the macaroni mixture for each appetizer.

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