~ Melanie's Sweet 'n Spicy Wing 'n Thing Sauce ~

Melanie's Sweet 'n Spicy Wing Sauce: Recipe yields approximately 1 1/2 cups of wing sauce or enough to sauce 4 dozen chicken wings.
Special Equipment List: large stainless steel bowl; whisk
Cook's Note: Sauce can be made well in advance of serving. Sauce keeps almost indefinitely in the refrigerator. Reheat in microwave or gently on stovetop. In case you are wondering what the "'n Thing" means in the title of this recipe, this sauce is just as delicious served with my recipe for ~ JoePa's Chicken Things ~ found in categories 1 & 17!
