I have been using this chili sauce/grape jelly sauce for over 35 years, but I always make my own meatballs. I make the meatballs in advance and store in freezer. Sometimes I add just a splash of liquid smoke to the sauce/jelly mix for a wonderful added flavor!

I've made a very similar recipe for these party meatballs. Instead of jelly, try using cranberry sauce. I have to make double batches and even then it doesn't last long.

I've had these appetizers so many times at get-togethers I decided to finally make them myself. These meatballs are so good and easy to make.

I put these in baking dish frozen mixed my chili sauce and jelly together and poured over meatballs. I cooked at 350 for about 30 minutes. Delicious!

I just toss plain frozen meatballs in the crockpot, pour the mixed jelly and chili sauce on top, set the appliance on low and walk away for a few hours. Always the first thing gone at every work potluck.
