Just like you get at a restaurant! Kinda messy to make but we loved them. Dipped them in spaghetti sauce.

I used string cheese cut into pieces. I also used a deep-fryer so the temperature was very exact. These were so good! The coating process is important. Make sure to thoroughly coat in each stage of the process otherwise you'll get cheese leakage. Flavor totally rocked and I could have eaten these all night. I used a homemade marinara as a dipping sauce but my husband said he thought it would be good with pizza sauce too.
