Just what you need for the Super Bowl: Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

I kid you not:

After hearing that I was going to bake buffalo chicken cupcakes for the Super Bowl (with hot sauce and blue cheese in the cake and a blue cheese buttercream frosting), one of my friends asked if I would be baking the cupcakes as as a joke.  “Are they just supposed to be funny, or will you actually enjoy eating buffalo chicken cupcakes?”  Having not yet baked the Super Bowl buffalo chicken cupcakes, I told them that I was baking them mostly for the fun of it.  I didn’t expect them to be particularly good.

When my house started to smell like buffalo wings (there was no chicken involved at this point), I knew I had the flavor right.  When I took a lick of my cupcake batter-laden finger, I began to suspect that I was going to like the buffalo chicken cupcakes.  When I tasted the cupcakes hot out of the oven, I realized that I had created a new crowd-pleasing Super Bowl tradition.

Check out the recipe here.

And if that’s not enough, try a little something to wash it down: Beer Cheese Cupcakes with Bacon Cheddar Cream Cheese Frosting.

Somebody clearly has too much time on their hands.


  1. Perhaps this is one of the reasons I never became one of the football mania folks. I’m all for sports and enjoying sports, but American football is just so over the top in so many ways, I just find all it repulsive.

    Sometimes I think Superbowl Sunday would be better off being renamed “Satan’s Sunday.” The excess of food, alcohol, sex (lots of sex trafficing occurs at super bowls), bets, and “wardrobe malfunction” half times is well, anything but keeping with the Lord’s Day. I don’t even want to think about how many Christian Americans honor the “football gods” on that day, lot alone keeping the day holy.

    But hey, maybe it’s just me.

  2. Not feelin’ the love with this concoction. I’m recovering from a stomach bug today, and that just looks like relapse city.
    Afraid my husband will have to rough it with a bag of chips and a bottle of beer for the Super Bowl.

  3. that looks gross and good at the same time ….:0 :)

  4. Seeing this makes me PROUD to be a vegetarian Dodger fan!

  5. I saw that somewhere else, perhaps on the news. I nearly puked…lol. Who would eat such garbage?

  6. Yuck! I don’t like football (oh the apostasy!), I won’t be watching the Superball and most defenetely will not be having these cupcakes.
