Reindeer Snacks

Last night was our car club Christmas party; we do it pot luck style with an ornament exchange game and a white elephant gift exchange. We have so much fun with this gathering every year; the people associated with the club are a blast. This year I wanted to take a hot dish so I chose meatballs, I looked around and found what we thought to be a very interesting and holiday style sauce for the meat balls; it was a big hit with all of our friends.

2 Lbs. - Meatballs (pre-cooked)
1 16oz. - Can Jellied Cranberry Sauce
1 12oz. - Heinz Chili Sauce

In a sauce pan warm the chili sauce and cranberry sauce until the jellied cranberry sauce has completely melted into the chili sauce, while the sauce is heating place the meatballs into a slow cooker. Once the sauce is ready pour it over the meatballs and stir to combine, turn the slow cooker onto high and let cook for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Stir the meatballs once every hour to try and keep meatballs evenly covered in the sauce. Once cooked place some toothpicks alongside the slow cooker and watch them disappear.
