These are from a friend and I make them for all parties and they get demolished, they are so good. You won't even believe what is actually in them to make them taste so yummy! I guarantee you will get raves!

We enjoyed this as part of our pre-Christmas party. I wish there had been a little more liquid, but other than that it was great!

I was planning on making Sweet & Sour Meatballs for me and my brother's birthday party, but I lost the recipe. I called my mom, knowing she had the recipe, but I couldn't reach her. My brother loves these and I couldn't let him down. Thankfully, I found yours - simple just like my mom's. Thank you, thank you, thank you. They were a huge hit and my little bro was in heaven!
