Hot honey is a sauce made of honey, apple cider, and chili powder, to name a few ingredients. The sauce can get pretty hot if you like it that way. It has a sweet but spicy kick to it. You can use it on chicken wings, thighs, chicken tenders, or even honey cornbread. That’s what I love about this hot honey sauce. It has endless possibilities. I always make it and store the rest in the refrigerator for later!
Honey- is one of the main ingredients in this hot honey sauce. It helps balance out the spicy sriracha sauce.
Apple Cider Vinegar- This will help cut the saltiness in this recipe.
Sriracha- spices things up a little bit but not too spicy. You can always make this hot honey recipe as spicy as possible.
Garlic Powder- Is used to bring a tremendous amount of flavor and toasty flavors.
Salt- I used salt in this recipe to enhance the flavor of other ingredients.
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes- You can use as much or as little heat as possible in this hot honey sauce recipe! Pepper flakes also have a ton of health benefits. One of them is to help reduce inflammation throughout the body.
Cook On Stovetop- Combine the honey, apple cider vinegar, hot sauce, garlic powder, and salt in a small saucepan.
Medium Heat- Heat the mixture over medium heat, constantly stirring, until the honey has melted and all the ingredients are well combined.
Simmer- Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for 5-10 minutes, occasionally stirring until the sauce thickens slightly.
Cooling- Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the sauce cool for a few minutes before using.
That's it! Your hot honey sauce is ready to use. You can store it in a jar or a squeeze bottle in the refrigerator for up to a month.
You can store your hot honey sauce in a mason jar. This will ensure it’s kept for the maximum time possible, which is in my findings. The honey sauce can last for up to 4 months.
Warm the honey in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds when removing it from the refrigerator. I wouldn’t suggest any longer. This hot honey does get hot heat-wise.
