Fried Cheese Recipe @pinch

This fried cheese is such a treat. There's a delicious mixture of cheeses that give these little cheese bites great flavor and a gooey texture. Dipped in marinara they make a great party appetizer or treat for game day. I first tried fried cheese at a restaurant. It was good, but I thought I could make it better. This has been a hit every time I make it!
