  1. For the batter: In a large bowl, whisk together the cornbread mix and seasoning blend, breaking up any clumps in the mix. Add the creamed corn and eggs and stir to combine gently; the mixture should be scoopable but hold its form. (Think the perfect ice cream ball.) Allow to rest in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  2. For the frying: In a large pot or fryer, bring at least 2 inches of peanut oil to 375 degrees F. Using 2 spoons or a medium ice cream scoop, scoop out some batter and slowly lower it into the oil. Drop in a few more and cook, flipping if needed, until the hush puppies float and are golden all around, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove to a wire rack over a baking sheet and season with a sprinkle of salt. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  3. For the sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, hot sauce and sugar. Use as a dipping sauce for the hush puppies.
