Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

Hello, my name is Cara and I am the worst cook ever. I really never cook. Partially because I hate to clean up afterwards and partially because anything good requires too many ingredients. However, sometimes it becomes necessary to cook.

For example, you may be invited to a pot luck, you may not want to spend money on ordering out, or your job may request that you bring in a food form your heritage. For me, it was the last one. Seeing as I don’t recognize with a particular heritage, I decided to go with something American. What can be more American than buffalo wings and cupcakes?

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cans of canned shredded chicken
  • Bottle of hot sauce
  • 4 tablespoons of Ranch dressing
  • Pillsbury pie crust
  • Shredded cheese of your choice
  • Cupcake tin
  • Oven

Preheat the over to 400˚.

In a bowl, mix the chicken the hot sauce and the Ranch dressing in a delicious concoction of goodness.

Take the pie crust and cut into squares. Line each square in one of the cupcake tins. Make sure to have a little bit more than the size of the tin so you can have room to cover the cupcake.

Fill the pie crusts with your concoction and then close up the cupcake with the leftover pie crust.

Place the covered cupcakes in the oven for about 15 minutes. Periodically peak to make sure it’s cooking nicely. You should smell the hot sauce!

With about 3 minutes left, take the cupcakes out and sprinkle some shredded cheese on top. Put back in the oven and in a few minutes they are done!

If I can make this taste good, anyone can. Good luck!

Sing It!
Snape. Snape. Severus Snape. Dumbledore! Harry Potter, Harry Potter- That’s ME! Need I say more? Sing this fun tune from the Potter Puppet Pals by Neil Cicierega.

Wear It!
What kind of fan would you be if you showed up to the movie theatre in muggle attire? Get your best dress robes on and draw the lightning bolt scar on your forehead with eyeliner. If you don’t want to go to all that trouble, at least wear a cool T-shirt like this one featured on Crushable.
