  1. That looks absolutely delicious.
    My husband is already into football mode and inviting his friends over. This would be a perfect party hit! And it sounds super simple to make.
    Thank you so much for sharing it!

  2. It’s so on! I want to make these on a weekend the Panthers are on the road because I won’t have to work. (Or maybe just a Saturday for college games, come to think of it) and a time there are no soccer matches for my girls … sorry, thinking out loud! Wings are king, though. Look forward to trying these out.

    • Hahaha, those are great times to make wings. But really, wings are good any time, right? Someone needs to come up with a super fast set it and forget it wings maker.
