    • 1tablespoon butter
    Buffalo Honey Hot Wings Sauce
    • (Honey is the dominant ingredient in this sauce for sticky hot wings while still being hot by using Hot WINGS sauce)
    • 2-3tablespoons Frank’s Hot WINGS Sauce (NOT original hot sauce like above) mixed with 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 1/2cup honey
    • 2tablespoons butter
    • 1tablespoons molasses
    Buffalo Mild Honey Hot Wings
    • 2/3cup Frank’s ORIGINAL Hot Sauce (NOT hot wings sauce) mixed with 2 teaspoons cornstarch
    • 1/4cup honey
    • 1tablespoon molasses
    • 1tablespoon butter
    • 1-3teaspoons Hot Wings Sauce (Optional for hotter wings)
    1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup. Top baking sheet with baking rack/oven proof cooling rack and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. In a medium bowl, mix together Rub Ingredients. Add half of the Rub to a large freezer bag. Add half of the wings and shake until coated evenly. Line wings on prepared baking rack so they are not touching. Add remaining Rub ingredients and wings to freezer bag and repeat.
    3. Bake on upper middle rack for 45-50 minutes. Move oven rack approximately 6-8″ from broiler and broil to desired crispiness, watching closely so they don’t burn. Flip chicken wings over and broil the other side until crispy.
    4. The prep for all of the sauces is the same. **While wings are cooling, melt butter over medium heat. Add remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce to a simmer until slightly thickened, approximately 3-5 minutes. Taste and add additional hot sauce for spicier sauces/more honey for sweeter.
    5. When chicken is done, add to a large bowl and pour over sauce. Gently toss wings with a spatula until evenly coated.
    6. Serve with desired Blue Cheese/ Ranch Dip, etc. dip
    7. Dig in!
