  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).

  5. Preheat oven to 500°F (250°C).

  6. In a separate bowl, combine the mumbo sauce and the honey. Stir the cooked wings in the sauce and coat them evenly.

  7. Place the coated wings back onto the baking sheet and spread them in a single layer.

  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until sauce is bubbly and caramelized. Cool, then serve.
