Delicious Halloween appetizers are really what makes the party. And these Barbecued Black Bat Wings are always a hit whenever I make them for a Halloween party, and they are super easy to make too. All it takes is a little black food coloring added to the barbecue sauce recipe to give the color on these “bat wings” a creepy look for a very yummy Halloween appetizer. (I have even cheated a few times buying ready made wings, and just adding the black BBQ sauce and baking until hot, and they were still a hit… shh don’t tell!)
Barbecued Black Bat Wings Ingredients:
- 4 pounds chicken wings
- 1 lb. margarine
- 4 tsp. salt
- 3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 c. vinegar
- 2 tsp. black pepper
- 1/2 lemon
- 5 tbsp. honey
- 2 cups ketchup
- Black pepper
- Black food coloring
Barbecued Black Bat Wings Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Boil the chicken wings for twenty minutes in a large pot. While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce. Melt margarine and add rest of ingredients, add enough black food colorings to the sauce to make it black looking. Bring to a boil, turn down and simmer 20 minutes.
Drain the wings well and add them to the sauce and toss to coat evenly, poking the wings liberally with a fork. Bake for 20 minutes, then increase the temperature to 450 degrees. Toss the wings in the sauce again to coat evenly. Bake until the sauce is thickened and slightly blackened, flipping the wings over occasionally, about another 10 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
