Why we love Hot Honey

We love this recipe because it combines the sweetness of honey with a strong kick from the peppers and sriracha! The heat cuts down on the sweetness, and simultaneously said sweetness mellows out the spiciness. It’s a perfect blend.

We love to eat Hot Honey on so many things — you can add it to a pizza if you want to go fancy, drizzle it over some cheese, or even put it on a breakfast sandwich. The options are nearly endless!

Health benefits of honey

Obviously one of the core ingredients of Hot Honey is…honey! And we love that, because honey is such a naturally good-for-you ingredient. In addition to being absolutely delicious, it also has several health benefits.

Honey is filled with vitamins, minerals, iron, zinc, and antioxidants, and can be used as an anti-inflammatory.
