How to make the Flamming hot cheeto cheese sticks 

First of all unwrap the string cheese and cut them in half. Mozzarella string cheese sticks are to be used for the purpose of this tutorial. Place them on a flat plate or tray and put them in the freezer for an hour. We are freezing them because the cheese would melt away at room temperature before the breading crisps in the air fryer. 

Secondly, the breading is the star of the show, so, the breading are the hot cheetos. Get a separate bowl and crush the cheetos in it. Crush the cheetos with a food processor or put them in a bag and use a rolling pin to turn them into crumbs. We put the crumbs in another bowl for our breading station.

Thirdly, get another bowl. Crack the egg and beat it.

Fourthly, dip each cheese stick into the egg and then into the cheeto crumbs or crushed cheetos. Press the crumbs slightly so that they stick. Next put each cheese stick into the air fryer basket.

Next, spray with olive oil so that it crisps up wonderfully. Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 6 minutes.

Lastly, they come out crispy on the outside but they come out melty on the inside. Dip the flamming hot cheetos cheese sticks in ranch dressings for an incredible experience. It is best served immediately, so that the cheese stays melted.
