One of the greatest fingers foods, in my opinion, are wings. They are perfect for tailgating, parties and everything in between. With halloween around the corner, these Bat Wings are the perfect freaky treat to serve your guests.  They taste like chicken, but are they? Grilled to perfection,  these hot wings dyed in black food coloring have traditional bbq wing flavors with crispy skin. 

Step 1: Black marinade 

Start with about 2 pounds of whole 3 piece chicken wings. Toss them in olive oil then season with Dad’s All Purpose seasoning

Next, in a bowl, add hot sauce, soy sauce, honey, bbq sauce and black food dye.  Mix the ingredients together.  Place the seasoned chicken wings in a ziplock bag and pour in the black marinade.  Close it up and make sure to cover everything in the sauce.

Set it in the fridge for at least 1 hour and allow it to marinate and soak in the color.
