The Greatest Food Hybrid Ever: Buffalo Chicken Cupcake

With the Super Bowl coming up, it's time to step up your app and 'zert game, guys (that's appetizers and desserts, obviously). Which makes this newest creation- the buffalo chicken cupcake- perfect for those wanting to get the best of both worlds. 

The treat boasts cake mix made with hot sauce and blue cheese, buttercream-blue cheese frosting and of course, a chicken wing to top it off. If this strikes your fancy, test it out.

Buffalo Chicken Cupcake Recipe
Yield: 10 cupcakes
For the cake:

1/2 cup hot sauce (I recommend a hot sauce that is typically used for Buffalo chicken.  Frank's is the classic choice.  I used Bella's Medium Wing Sauce.)

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sour cream

1 egg

1 cup flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

For the blue cheese buttercream frosting:
