Ultimate Holiday Party Meatballs - Easy Peasy and Delicious

As part of a campaign through Mom Central I was selected to try out Ultimate Party Meatballs. I love food reviews. Receiving food in the mail is as good as receiving a letter from an old friend in my book.

I was sent:
A can Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
A bottle Heinz® Chili Sauce

I supplied the meatballs and wah-la...a delectable dish.

The Recipe is so easy.
1 14-ounce can Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
1 12-ounce bottle Heinz® Chili Sauce
1 2-pound bag frozen, pre-cooked, cocktail-size meatballs

Combine sauces in a large saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth. Add meatballs. Cover and cook for 15 minutes or until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally.
Makes 30 appetizer servings.

Slow cooker Preparation: Place meatballs in a slow cooker. Combine sauces and pour over meatballs. Cover and cook 4 hours on HIGH.

Here is what mine looked like while cooking.

And afterward:

My husband and I ate all of them and bought the ingredients on our last grocery trip to have them again.

The holidays are hard enough with all the preparations of family, gifts, and more. To spend less time in the kitchen while still satisfying and wowing your guests, head over to Ultimate Party Meatballs.

There are so many tips at Ultimate Party Meatballs, recipes, party ideas, and a sweepstakes that ends in February for 3,000 and crock pots for 20.

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Heinz and Ocean Spray and received the ingredients necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.” 


  1. You have peaked my interest--these LOOK good but...cranberry sauce? I am not a fan. Do they taste very much like cranberry sauce or does the chili sauce cover that taste?

  2. I have made these and served them on toothpicks as an appetizers. Everyone LOVED them, they were SO good!
    I urge everyone to try them, you are right they are great!

  3. Thise look delicious!

  4. I gave this recipe to my mother in law and she made them for Christmas. EVERYONE raved about them, and she was so happy that they were so easy to make. Thanks for posting this recipe. We will definitely make them again.
