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.
