  • 1 32 oz jar grape jelly
  • 2 12 oz bottles tomato-based chili sauce (like Heinz)
  • 5 pounds pre-cooked cocktail size meatballs


  • Combine grape jelly and chili sauce in a saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until warm, 5 to 10 minutes. (I've skipped this step and they still came out great!)
  • Place meatballs in crockpot and top with grape jelly mixture.
  • Cook on Low for 3 to 4 hours. Enjoy!



  • This recipe can also be made with BBQ sauce instead of chili sauce. 
  • You can use homemade meatballs or frozen meatballs in this recipe.
  • You can serve your meatballs with toothpicks for an appetizer or over rice as a main meal!
  • A reader recently told us this recipe is also great using kielbasa! Yum!
