"I was a little wary of this - wasn't sure about the grape jam and chili sauce but it really is great. You can't tell it's grape jam and it adds a slightly sweet flavor to them. I thought it was excellent."
"Love these. I have even used sliced smoked sausage in a pinch. Wieners work too."
"This sauce works great for meatballs too. I get so many compliments and requests for the recipe - it's almost embaressing. You can use the frozen meatballs and add them to the sauce while it's cooking. Enjoy!"
"These are yummy little treats!!! We often make these as little appetizers at a potluck or family get-together. A very easy, very quick, and very delicious recipe. Thanks for posting!"
"This is the way mom used to make it when I was little. You can definitely use 2 pkgs of little smokies or reduce the sauce ingredients to half for 1 pkg and still have enough. Thanks for reminding me about this one :) (sauce works well with cocktail meatballs too :)"
"I made this for a cocktail party tonight, and they were a huge hit. I had to stop myself from eating too many! These are fun to eat, and the little kid at the party loved that you got to stab the smokies with toothpicks. (Those little plastic swords would probably be even more fun.)"
"I loved this! I used hot dogs because I didn't have lil smokies and marionberry pepper jelly with some homemade chili sauce. Terrific can't stop eating kind of recipe. Thanks for sharing!"
"I also make these every year - however, after about an hour sitting in the crockpot, the sauce starts to become dark and dry and begins to smell sour and strong."
"My dad showed me this recipe 6 years ago or so with meatballs. I use it at least twice a month! Its so good with pulled pork!"
"These were extremely easy to make and delicious!"
"I made this for Christmas eve, as part of our traditional appetizer dinner. I grew up eating these, and love them still. Yum!"
"GReat and easy. Thanks"
"Yummy so good an old favorite"
"No fail recipe. I use leftover sauce for other random things as well... chicken fingers, hot dogs, mac and cheese, sandwich, anything you feel like eating."
"made this for quite sometime now. I got the recipe from my friends mom. I have also used the same sauce with meatballs. Turns out great with that as well"
"These couldn't be any better or any easier to make. I made 1 pound of sausages for my family for Super Bowl Sunday and they were gone in no time at all."
"These are very yummy. I made them for a party I threw and everyone really enjoyed them. I used a little less than 1 cup jelly. And cooked on high covered for 3 hours, then on warm with lid off to serve with toothpicks. Thank you for posting this winning recipe!"
"How easy is this recipe for a party?! My husband asked if I could make cocktail franks that are cooked in a crockpot with grape jelly. It is a popular dish at some of his work gatherings, but we've never made it at home. I came to Zaar to search up the recipe and decided to use this one. I had never used Chili sauce so had no idea what it was, but I found it with little problem in the store. It isn't spicy hot as one might believe. The combination of the grape jelly and chili sauce really compliment each other. Simply mix the two and add the smokies, cover, and let it heat in the crockpot. The sauce is flavorful and thick. It's delicious. This was a nice addition to our New Year's Eve dinner/party."
"Made these for my father's 74th surprise birthday party. Had to use crabapple jelly as it was all I had in the house and added 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. They were wonderful and the crockpot came home emply."
