Spicy Apple Cranberry Little Smokies Recipe

Is it really Christmastime if you haven’t had any little smokies yet?

I don’t think so.

To officially kick off the holiday, I made a batch of this classic appetizer but added a holiday twist by covering them in a spicy apple cranberry sauce.

Apple Cranberry Little Smokies made in the crock pot. Perfect Christmas party or potluck appetizer.

To make the sauce, I used apple jelly, canned jellied cranberry, and some spicy BBQ sauce (to add a little kick).

When I made the first batch, I wasn’t really sure how they would turn out…

After they simmered a few hours, I dipped my toothpick in and picked up one of the juicy little guys.

I bit into it and….OH MY GOSH…it was sooooo delicious! Just bursting with flavor!

With a 5 minute prep, easy crock pot cooking, and flavor explosion, I think these little smokies are my new favorite holiday party appetizer!
