- 2 7.25 ounce boxes Kraft Mac and Cheese
- 8 tablespoons butter divided in half
- 3 cups cold water

Pot will take a few minutes to pressurize, then will count down and cook for 4 minutes. When pot beeps, do a quick release or gradual quick release to minimize liquid spraying out
When pin drops, carefully remove lid, stir macaroni, and stir in remaining butter, milk and cheese powder until smooth and creamy
Recipe was tested in both the 6 quart and 8 quart Instant Pot pressure cookers and can be made in either without changing anything.
To make 1 box, use 1.5 cups water and use amounts of butter and milk recommended on package. For 3 boxes, use 4.5 cups of water and increase the other ingredients.
For extra creamy mac and cheese, substitute heavy cream for the milk.
