If you've never had spicy and sweet cocktail meatballs, this combination of ingredients might sound weird. I totally get that! It sounded weird to me, too, the first time. But just trust me that they come out delicious and they go fast at a party!
- 1 to 1 1/2 pounds frozen cocktail meatballs or homemade mini meatballs
- 1 jar (9 ounce) Strawberry Jalapeno Fruit & Honey Spread
- 1 jar (12 ounce) bottle of chili sauce
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded (optional, if you want it spicier)
Pour the Strawberry Jalapeno spread and the cocktail sauce into the bowl of your slow cooker, then add the meatballs—you can put them in frozen, no need to thaw. Give it a quick stir so that the sauce coats the meatballs. Set your Crockpot to low and cook until the sauce and meatballs are hot, about 3 to 4 hours on low.
You can also make these easy Saucy Hot and Sweet Crockpot Meatballs ahead of time: just reheat them in the slow cooker, or on the stove if you’re in a rush. If you're making them for a party, keep them warm in your slow cooker—guests can help themselves and the meatballs stay hot!
