Sweet and Spicy Meatballs

It’s that time of the year where everyone is running around trying to come up with a quick appetizer to come to the holiday parties with … here’s a simple one that I will be serving at our Christmas Party coming up …

These were originally made for the girls night I had a few months ago … I figured they were a hit with the wide variety of tastebuds at THAT party … therefore, they should be good enough for the holidays! The only thing(s) I propose to do differently is: less brown sugar AND cook them in a crock pot. Yup, that’s it.

I so need to get a better picture this time around!

Here’s what you need to do a big batch:

3 lbs of frozen meatballs. I am using the Costco Italian Meatballs, my favorite
1 3/4 cup molasses – used up the rest of Hubby’s stash for his BBQ sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar NOT packed
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic powder (not salt)
pinch of cayenne (I sort of wish I had added more, that might have sold me)
1 cup water

Add everything to a pot except the meatballs and stir well. Add in meatballs and stir as well as you can.

Serve up on a platter with toothpicks. The cool girl over at Oh Bite It served hers with pretzel sticks for the spears … I’m just not that cool and would rather save the sticks for dippin’ 🙂
