This sauce is incredibly easy to make! It requires a few simple steps and cleanup is a breeze.

It’s so cheap to make, no more store bought honey mustard, this recipe has you covered and you can enjoy it without leaving your home, using pantry staple ingredients.
Dijon Mustard. Choose any dijon mustard of choice, this is the base of the spicy honey mustard so choose one you enjoy.
Hot Sauce. I use Frank’s Red Hot. You can use Cholula or any hot sauce you prefer. I enjoy the tangy spicy that Franks offers, but choosing your favorite hot sauce is key to this sauce!
Mayonnaise. Use any mayo of choice!
Apple Cider Vinegar. This adds a nice tangy flavor to the mustard. The recipe just calls for a small amount to help tie everything together.
