11 Sticky, Spicy, Sometimes-Sweet Wing Sauce Recipes

Even if you don’t know the difference between a touchdown or a field goal, or offense vs. defense, you can appreciate a good batch of chicken wings at a Super Bowl party. After all, you came here for the snacks, right? To kick off your game day festivities, we’re sharing our favorite wing sauce recipes, from the sticky sweet to the fiery.
