Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This cook is on a roll!!! Talk about sssssssizzling hot - these fab wings won us over in a heartbeat. It's no wonder that they've got folks talking from coast to coast!

Note: We substituted in a different hot pepper jelly than Sherri recommends, but the results were still de-lish!
