Dr Pepper & Cream Soda Wings

The first time I tasted Dr Pepper & Cream Soda I knew I was going to make a wing sauce with it. I mean that stuff is just flat-out fantastic, specially for a big Dr Pepper fan (me!). So I made the sauce. Happily. And boy, is this ever crazy good.

Classic Dr Pepper flavor, a little creamy sweetness, and just a slight kick of Buffalo sauce, this sauce is fantastic. Each flavor is different. Nothing is lost. You’ll get everything in every single bite. Could this be the perfect wing sauce?

Dr Pepper & Cream Soda Wings

I would not change a thing about these Dr Pepper & Cream Soda wings. The flavor is unique and delicious. I like my sauce a bit thick, but not gloppy thick, so I added a little cornstarch at the end to help thicken it up. You can leave it out if you want. After the sauce reduces take a spoon and dip it in the sauce to see if you want it thicker or not.

There’s nothing wrong with serving a bit extra of the sauce on the side for dipping the wings, along with Ranch and blue cheese dressing.
