A recipe for Hush Puppies with a spicy honey drizzle. I have to tell you after we shot this, I ate a million of these on set. They are so so good. Simple, and easy, and seriously perfect to make for a group of friends while you have a Harry Potter marathon. They are also cute and light and airy. There is a subtle kick in sauce which is awesome. This is a really great recipe to make when you entertain.

    Oh yum! Funny: I make an eerily similar spicy honey “drizzle” (“dip”) as well. So much better than Thai Sweet Chili sauce.

    Obviously I’m a little late to the party (as in almost a year late) but as a southern girl I love hush puppies and would never think to drizzle them in what looks to be an asian inspired sauce. With that being said…these look yummy!
