More About This Recipe
  • 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. If this is your first introduction to savory cupcakes, wonton wrappers are the perfect quick cooking ingredient to hold your favorite filling. 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! 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. Add some sliced celery for some freshness and crunch. Whether you serve these as an appetizer or the main meal, Buffalo lovers will love these!
