An easy appetizer for a crowd can be made by combining a jar of grape jelly, a bottle of barbecue sauce and 32-ounces of cocktail wieners into a slow cooker and cooking on high for a couple of hours. This recipe serves 10 and is easy to double or triple.
Two 16-ounce packages of cocktail wieners are placed into a slow cooker with an 8-ounce jar of grape jelly and a 12-ounce bottle of barbecue sauce. Stir to blend and heat on high for 2 to 4 hours until the wieners are heated and the sauce is bubbling.
Another quick appetizer recipe combines a can of chili without beans and 16-ounces of processed cheese, such as Velveeta, in a slow cooker. This is cooked on high for 2 hours or until the cheese has melted. Stir well to mix and serve warm with tortilla chips.
A third option starts with a 16-ounce package of cocktail wieners. A pound of bacon is cut into thirds, and each piece of bacon is wrapped around a cocktail wiener and secured with a toothpick. The prepared cocktail wieners are placed on a cookie sheet and sprinkled with 1 cup of brown sugar. They are baked in an oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until the sugar is melted and the bacon is crisp.
