Sweet Brown Sugar Baked Wings with Red Pepper Ricotta Sauce 

It's not a party until someone pulls out the wings! And these sweet baked wings are delicious! They're crispy and crunchy and they've got a lovely sweetness to them. Paired with the red pepper ricotta sauce, these are the ultimate party snack!

This recipe was inspired by a popular Pinterest wings dish that calls for goat cheese instead of ricotta. I'm not a fan of goat's cheese but I really wanted to make try the red pepper sauce so, out came the ricotta! It works beautifully, I think. These wings have a secret ingredient in them that will have everyone coming back for me: smoked paprika. If you've not discovered the amazing umami powers of smoked paprika, be prepared for an amazing explosion of flavor.
