Do you want to cool down the heat in your buffalo wing sauce? If so, this recipe is great for you! The heat in this sweet and spicy buttermilk brown butter buffalo wing sauce is toned down by adding a bit of buttermilk. Yup buttermilk...Not only does the buttermilk reduce the buffalo sauce heat but it gives it an amazing flavor. Try it and see for yourself. This sauce is perfect with my blue cheese dip (recipe below) and crispy baked chicken wings.

If making the sauce for wing. Add the wings to a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the chicken wings and toss to coat.
