Crock Pot Grape Jelly Meatballs - only 3 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep! Makes a great appetizer or game day snack!

These crock pot grape jelly meatballs are so good, and they are the easiest appetizer you could ever ask for! If you scroll down to look at the ingredient list, you’ll see that there are actually only 3 ingredients in the whole recipe – it doesn’t get much easier than that. 🙂

I love to make these meatballs for potlucks, but they would also be perfect as an appetizer or game day snack to share with friends. Everyone loves them!

You might think that grape jelly and meatballs together sound a little strange, but somehow when you cook them, all the ingredients combine to make the best sweet barbecue sauce.

I guarantee you will want to make these again and again – not only are they delicious, but they are ridiculously easy to make. Enjoy!

*Note: I actually made my own meatballs when I made this recipe. I used a recipe from an old Betty Crocker cookbook that calls for 1.5 pounds of ground meat, rolled the meatballs a little smaller than usual, and baked them ahead of time. If you go with the storebought variety, I’ve heard good things about Costco’s frozen meatballs.

  2. My family use to make these years ago every year on new years eve and starting this year I am bringing the tradition back because these are the greatest meatballs in the world

  3. I like to experiment so I used her meatball sauce above but added 4 tblsp of spicy mustad and a 1/4 cup of molasses, bring it almost to a boil and then pour it over the meatballs in the crock pot and cook for 4 hrs. on high.
