When we first heard from Stephanie Polluck over at Cupcake Project there was a moment of silence. It was quickly followed by head scratching and curiosity and then the stomach growling started. A cupcake made with blue cheese, hot sauce and actual chicken, this is one recipe you’re just going to have to make to believe.

Each cupcake is topped with a hot wing and the flavors blend perfectly with a cupcake that’s topped with frosting that incorporates a little blue cheese.

Even though first appears to be some sort of early April Fool’s day joke, this cupcake does instead have a savory flavor. They’re slightly sweet (like cornbread) but the other savory tastes pack a punch. These could be a perfect centerpiece for a Super Bowl party, or a snack, side dish or bit of fun for any other party.

Have you wrapped your mind around it yet? Stephanie answers some popular questions over on her blog about this unique creation (which by her own admittance she wasn’t expecting to enjoy, but did!).
