Halloween Week Day 6

Good afternoon bloggers! We are making our biggest attempt to finish this very long and dragged out Halloween week. Today, we will be working with chicken wings and food coloring! I love working with food coloring. You can have something so ordinary and it will end up looking fun and entertaining. We will  be making a dish called Barbecued Bat Wings. I know... it sounds horrible, but the taste will be amazing and your children will have a blast eating the "bat wings". We will also be skipping our trivia for the day in order to get right to the recipe. Let's get in the kitchen and get the ball rolling!

Barbecued Bat Wings

You will need:

  • 4 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 cups ketchup 
  • 1.5 cups molasses 
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar 
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 
  • 2 tablespoons sugar 
  • Hot sauce to taste
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Black food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
  • Green food coloring

Let's do this!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Boil the chicken wings for twenty minutes in a large pot. 
  3. While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce. 
  4. Whisk together the ketchup, molasses, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, hot sauce, salt, and pepper until smooth in a large roasting pan. 
  5. Add enough black, blue, and green food coloring to the sauce to make a dark black sauce. 
  6. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, stirring once. 
  7. Drain the wings well and add them to the sauce and toss to coat evenly, poking the wings liberally with a fork. 
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, then increase the temperature to 450 degrees. 
  9. Toss the wings in the sauce again to coat evenly. 
  10. Bake until the sauce is thickened and slightly blackened, flipping the wings over occasionally, about another 15 minutes. 
  11. Serve hot or at room temperature.
  12. Enjoy!

I hope you have a great Sunday. Enjoy this creepy recipe. Share it, hide it, or do what you do. I hope this was a fun recipe for you all and I'll catch you all on the flip side. Happy blogging to all! <3
