You won't believe something this easy could taste so fantastic! Crunchy outside, gooey cheese inside, these mozzarella sticks are a treat all ages will love. Kids could help wrap them, too. —Shirley Warren, Thiensville, Wisconsin

"My family loved these as a quick side/appetizer with dinner last night. I would like to try these again with pepper jack cheese string cheese."

"Wonton Wrappers and egg roll wrapper are not the same. The size is different, looks like in the pic, she used egg roll wrappers. The instructions were back and forth between the 2."

"Made these today to go along with our home made pizza and finger foods. Love these alot and I followed the recipe exactly. We also made homemade sauce for the pizza, so we used the sauce for these too."

"This way different, easy and fun to do with kids under supervision with the oil. Can't understand with so many outstanding reviews you would get a KSHREEL writing they were terrible. What a wet mop .....go make cookies or something you love."

"These yummy snacks went over great at my family's fondue party. I made a pizza/marinara fondue to dip these sticks and we had a fondue pot with oil, so guest could fry their own cheese sticks. I just pre-wrapped the cheese sticks in the egg roll wrappers and everyone pierced the sticks with fondue forks and fried them at their leisure. These were the first thing to disappear off the table. My only issue was that the cheese got hard again quickly after frying. They still tasted great and nobody complained about this. Everyone thought it was a creative way to do fondue. These were easy and fun and I will make again."

"I have not made these yet, BUT, I bet they could be brushed with a little olive oil and baked instead of fried. Has anyone baked them?"

"OMG, where have these been all my life?! I just made a batch for my husband and myself for a quick Saturday lunch. They took less time to prepare than a box of mac and cheese! Less cleanup too--just the small skillet I fried them in. I'm thinking to make appetizers for a group, you could cut the cheese sticks in half--or even thirds, as I saw one reviewer mentioned--and wrap them in wonton wrappers. I will say that next time, I think I need to cool down the oil a bit--I noticed the cooking instructions on the package of wrappers says 350? for the oil, and fry egg rolls for 2 to 3 minutes instead of 375? for 30 to 60 seconds. My cheese was warm, but not terribly gooey, but any longer at that temp and the wrappers would have burned. Still yummy though!"

"these were excellent and very easy to make but I think they should be named something different. I remembered the name and when I was at the grocery store I bought wonton wrappers instead of eggroll wrappers. Yes, I had read the recipe but remembered the name more, lol. I did use the wonton wrappers but had to cut the string cheese into thirds and it took a bit more time but still tasted great. I'll definitely make them again but will use eggroll wrappers."
