Use Your Air Fryer
Heat air fryer to 325°F. Spray crumb-coated cheese balls with cooking spray if desired. Place, in batches, in single layer in air fryer basket, leaving spaces between cheese balls. Cook 3 to 5 min. or until cheese balls are crisp and golden brown. Place on paper towel-covered cooling rack; cool slightly.
These fun-to-eat cheese poppers can be partially prepped ahead of time. Coat cheese balls with ingredients as directed. Place in single layer on baking sheet. Freeze 1 hour, then transfer cheese balls to freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 1 week. Refrigerate frozen cheese balls overnight to thaw before cooking as directed. Note: If cooking the cheese balls in an air fryer, no need to thaw them before cooking.
