    Directions

    For the wings: Cut the wings at the base of the bone and pull the meat down, to form the lollipops. Marinate the wings in the hot sauce for 24 hours.

    Preheat the fryer oil to 350 degrees F.

    Combine the flour, Cajun spice, cornmeal and salt together. Coat the lollipops in the flour mixture. In batches, fry the wings until golden brown and fully cooked, 8 to 10 minutes. Oil should cover the wings, and be sure not to crowd the wings when frying.

    For the buttermilk blue cheese dip: Combine the mayonnaise, blue cheese, celery, onion and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until serving.

    Serve the wings with the dip.
