This recipe is extremely simple and takes just minutes to make. I made my version of Hot Honey with Jalaneños and red pepper flakes but you can change out the type of pepper if you want to make the honey hotter. Once you’ve made the recipe and let your beautiful concoction cool, just put it in a jar with a lid and store it in the fridge. 

What you’ll need to make Hot Honey:

  • light, pasteurized honey, like clover
  • Jalapeños 
  • red chili flakes

As I said, after just one taste of Hot Honey, you’re going to want to drizzle it on just about anything and everything. It’s great on chicken, biscuits, cornbread, pizza, waffles, pancakes and it’s outrageously good in vinaigrette salad dressing. For a real flavor boost, add a spoonful to iced tea or mulled cider when the weather turns cool. Just let your imagination run wild!
