These were very good right out of the oven, however the left overs seemed to loose some of their Flavor. Next time I will make only what I plan to eat right away.

Not bad. I made as directed, I didn't really taste the ranch and no one thought they were spicy enough, could have been the hot sauce I chose (Frank's). I do like that they are baked and not fried...that's always a plus. And they did get a nice crunch to them.

These were delicious! I used the 3 pound bag of frozen wings. I put Frank's Hot Wing Sauce on them with the butter and let them sit in the fridge for 4 hours. We liked the ranch and paprika on them. I also sprinkled a bit more regular Frank's Hot Sauce on them before I put them in the oven. Thanks so much for posting! Made for 12 Days of Christmas recipe swap.
