Crock Pot Little Smokies are cooked in a sweet, tangy, and spicy sauce and are great for potlucks as well as holiday parties.
Go to any holiday party around here and you’re likely to see a crock pot full of Little Smokies or Meatballs. They are super easy to make. The crock pot does all the work, only a few ingredients are needed, they’re economical, and feed a hungry crowd. There’s nothing not to like about them.
Crock Pot Little Smokies are super fun to eat too since you get to stab them with a toothpick.
The sauce is sweet and tangy and perfectly compliments the smokiness of the cocktail weiners. I use a jar of chili sauce, a jar of grape jelly, a can of crushed pineapple, and a few chopped jalapenos to give it a little heat.
If you’re pressed for time, as everyone is during the holidays, Crock Pot Little Smokies are the perfect solution. It only takes a few minutes to dump the ingredients in the crock pot and then a few hours later you have a hot and delicious appetizer.
Note: The cocktail weiners are already cooked so the cooking time is very flexible. I would give it at least a good 2 hours for the flavors to meld though.

We love the recipe, make it all the time. It is the best.
I made the mistake of using a mini crockpot to cook these. The full flavors didn’t get all through them!
Next time I will use my medium crockpot with plenty of room to stir!
Otherwise very good sauce!
I have made this several times it is best ever. We got burnt out on typical little weenies recipes so boring. But then I found this one. No one was disappointed and really enjoyed a new twist on the little weenies. Totally love this recipe.
Added Famous Dave’s bbq sauce, used raspberry preserve instead of Grape. Delicious.
Do we pour in the pineapple juice too or drain it first? Thanks! Sounds delicious, will be making soon!
Did you poor juice and all
I add onions and mustard also to little smokies
