We took them to a Super Bowl party this year and everyone, kids and grown-ups, raved about how good these meatballs are. They were the first to go. Moist and juicy with the perfect combination of flavors.
Who needs a plate? I’ve been known to eat them right out of the serving dish!

Since we are usually running from one kid activity to the next, it’s nice to be able to leave the crockpot and come back and have an appetizer ready to take to a friend’s house.
They are tangy, yet sweet, so kids gobble them up and adults love ’em too! I’ve even served the leftovers for dinner the next day. Dinner was on the table in a flash 🙂
Crockpot Meatballs stay moist, so serving the next day, or the day after that, totally works!
These meatballs are really so simple and oh, so delish! I never thought grape jelly would be something that’d make such a great recipe, but it adds the right amount of sweetness without being over powering.

Where to find Chili Sauce
If you’re not sure where to find the chili sauce, try looking in the Ketchup isle at the grocery store. And Costco is a great place to get a big bag of tasty meatballs.
