Place sauce ingredients in a bowl and heat until peanut butter melts into sauce. Set aside.
Pat wings dry. Deep fry in peanut oil for 4 minutes at 300 degrees or until an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees inside the wing.
Drain on paper towels. Place in a sealed container with peanut powder and shake until coated.
