These Buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese cupcakes are filled with Buffalo flavor and lots of cheese. They're baked in wonton wrappers to hold all of that goodness in.

wonton wrappers
3/4
cup cooked and shredded chicken
2

Directions

  • 1 Prepare macaroni and cheese according to package instructions.
  • 2 While macaroni is cooking, preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • 3 Place two wonton wrappers into each muffin tin overlapping slightly to create a cup.
  • 4 Once the macaroni is prepared, place it in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and Buffalo sauce and mix together.

Buffalo Chicken Mac 'n Cheese Cupcakes

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Attention Buffalo chicken lovers: these Buffalo Chicken Mac 'n Cheese Cupcakes are just for you!


I had a lot of fun creating these Buffalo Chicken Mac n' Cheese Cupcakes. Buffalo flavored anything is always welcome in my home so getting to mix Buffalo flavor with macaroni and cheese was a hit just waiting to be created.

 

Betty Crocker Mac 'n Cheese

Start off by preparing some mac 'n cheese according to the package directions.

 

Add two wonton wrappers to each muffin cup.

While the macaroni and cheese is baking, line each muffin tin with two wonton wrappers. We're putting two wrappers in each tin because we're going to load these babies up with mac n' cheese and chicken. And if this is your first introduction to savory cupcakes, wonton wrappers are the perfect quick cooking ingredient to hold your favorite filling.

 

Add Buffalo sauce and chicken to the mac 'n cheese.

Once the macaroni and cheese is finished, we're going to Buffalo-ize it with some Buffalo sauce and some chicken. I only added two tablespoons of Buffalo sauce, which gave it a healthy kick but if you like it hotter, by all means go for it!

 

Fill the wonton wrappers with the mac 'n cheese filling.

Mix it all together and spoon it into the wonton-lined muffin tins.

 

Top with blue cheese.

If you're a hard-core Buffalo lover you can add some blue cheese sprinkles to the top -- as much or as little as you want.
