I just added this recipe to my favorites so I remember to make it again for the big game! It's such a yummy way to eat vegetables and get all that buffalo flavor and dipping fun. Plus, it's really easy to make.

Seriously Addictive! I made these as an appetizer for the playoffs this weekend and they were so good! We couldn't get enough of them and I loved that I was getting al the Buffalo flavor I wanted but I didn't have to feel guilty about eating a lot of wings because I was eating veggies! Pros: Fast and a yummy way to get veggies! Cons: Not enough!
