These Buffalo Brown Sugar Bites will become your go-to for all sports gatherings!
The Perfect Tailgate Bite
Tailgating is a big deal where I’m from.
And no, I am not talking about following too close in your vehicle…although I DO live in NJ and the drivers here are aggressive to say the least.
The tailgating I am talking about is the “party in a parking lot” kinda tailgate. Where an informal meal is served up along side of anything and everything that usually does not involve utensils.
In case you don’t know, Derek, Cal and I are big Philadelphia Eagles fans and although we do not get the chance to tailgate often, we will invite friends and family over to watch the games!
Either way, these Buffalo Brown Sugar Bites are my favorite thing to serve and are usually gone by halftime!
Buffalo and Brown Sugar
I first tried this mouthwatering combo at a local brewery. They served it on a pizza!
I tell you, It was love at first taste!
The sweet sugar balances out the hot sauce perfectly so I looked to recreate it in a fun bite-sized way.
These Buffalo Brown Sugar Bites are quick, easy and most importantly, tasty as heck! Even in the middle of the winter! Football season cannot come soon enough…

These Buffalo Brown Sugar Bites are the perfect treat for the big game!
- 1 Sheet Frozen Puff Pastry store bought
- 1 Cup Shredded Chicken*
- 1/4 Cup Buffalo Sauce (homemade or store bought)
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheese I like mixing monterey jack, mozzarella and blue!
- 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- Optional Chopped Chives
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Mix shredded chicken, buffalo sauce and brown sugar in a bowl and set aside.
Prepare puff pastry vessels by cutting semi-thawed pastry sheet into 36 vessels. See how I do mine in the recipe notes!
Top baked pastry vessels with chicken mixture followed by cheese.
Place under broiler for a few minutes until cheese melts.
-Prepare chicken mixture up to 2 days prior and place in fridge. OR weeks ahead and freeze! Just take out the day before party and defrost in fridge.
-Then prepare pastries the day of and top before guests arrive. Pop in oven for a few min. at 350 to melt cheese and reheat pastries.
-Aluminum tins are best to use for parties. They come with a lid to stack in the fridge and can be popped directly in the oven when ready!
*For a quick chicken fix, buy a rotisserie chicken from the store and shred that!
