Why Make This Spicy Honey Mustard

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

This honey mustard can be customized to any spice level (mild medium or hot!). You can easily adjust the sweetness and control the sauce yourself however you like.

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.

Ingredients Needed

Glass bowls on a counter full of 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.

All other ingredients and measurements can be found in the recipe card towards the bottom of this post.

Honey. You can also use a low sugar honey substitute or maple syrup if needed

Recipe Tips
