This Homemade Rainbow Mac and Cheese Recipe Will Change Your Life

So we saw the trending rainbow grilled cheese and decided to give it a try here at B+C — behold our rainbow grilled cheese recipe! Now we had a lot of extra cheese sauce left over, so what else is there to do besides upgrade basic baked mac and cheese and whip up bowls of homemade rainbow mac and cheese! Hallelujah! *Cue the spotlights centering in on this bowl of mac and cheese.* Here at B+C HQ, some claimed that the different colors tasted better or worse than others, however they are all the same! Once again, funny to see how the mind will play tricks when you eat foods of “not normal” colors.

We didn’t think mac and cheese could get any better!


  • box of elbow macaroni
  • 5 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • 2 cups of cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • food coloring


Mix butter, milk, cheese, flour and salt in a pot and let melt over medium heat. Stir constantly to avoid burning.

Pour melted cheese into four small containers and add in food coloring. Stir until combined.

Cook macaroni and then divide evenly into the four separate cheese sauce bowls. Toss the macaroni in the cheese until fully coated.
