Barbecued Bat Wings

Barbecued Bat Wings created by Alia55

These are fun to make and very tasty. The BBQ sauce is a hideous, tar like mixture, but it tastes great!

Ready In:
1hr 5mins



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Boil the chicken wings for twenty minutes in a large pot. While the wings are cooking, prepare the sauce. Whisk together the ketchup, molasses, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, hot sauce, salt, and pepper until smooth in a large roasting pan. Add enough black, blue, and green food colorings to the sauce to make a dark black sauce. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, stirring once.
  • Drain the wings well and add them to the sauce and toss to coat evenly, poking the wings liberally with a fork.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then increase the temperature to 450 degrees. Toss the wings in the sauce again to coat evenly. Bake until the sauce is thickened and slightly blackened, flipping the wings over occasionally, about another 15 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.

    This is my son’s favorite Halloween dish and really his favorite wings, period! Very sticky and messy, but it wouldn’t be as much fun otherwise! I skimp on the hot sauce and just use black food coloring.

    I went against my wishes, and made these for my GF's 7 year old's BD party. Well, maybe I should listen to kids more. Or Aliia. Gotta say it was as stated. Looked uber-funky and tasted grea.t Definitely noticed the mole asses. Very distinct.

    These were a hit for my Halloween Party, made a double batch in the oven and then put them in the crockpot on warm. (see picture) They looked so real but very good. Thx for sharing =)

    This was fun. the chicken wings looked really good. I didn't feel like I needed to add any food coloring because the molasses made it very black as it was. However, I did think it tasted a lot like molasses, so I added red pepper flakes and garlic salt. I also didn't baste it like the recipe stated. I cooked the sauce on the stove for 10 minutes, the put in in a crock pot with the bat wings (cooked according to directions). It was a hit!
