Who is excited sports are returning… ME! I know it is not what we are use to but it sure is nice to sit around and watch the game with some close friends or family and these buffalo chicken squares are the perfect snack to serve up. They are simple to make and taste amazing! I used my own ranch recipe you can find here to help keep the points low, and if you are not huge on spicy food feel free to lower the amount of franks sauce..they definitely have a nice kick to them. Makes 20 squares at 4SP each on all 3 MyWW programs
