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.
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!
