Buffalo Shrimp

Playing with buffalo sauce again and I have to say this is easier than the chicken balls and just as easy/un-messy to eat (with toothpicks). It’s a good one for your March Madness menu but it’s also good any time of the year, so I’ve decided to share it again for the link party going on at The Lady Behind the Curtain today! … someone got to these before I managed to get my iPhone on it : )
