    1. I used pre-made frozen meatballs and baked them according to the directions. Once you add them to the crockpot with the rest of the ingredients, let them simmer for 1/2 hour to an hour before serving!
      If you use homemade meatballs, cook for 3-4 hours, until meatballs are cooked through! 🙂

  1. Hi I want to make these for my sons 2nd birthday party this Saturday. Are they spicy? And what brand of chili sauce did you use?

    1. Hi, I used our local Hy-Vee brand chili sauce for the recipe! I believe Heinz brand is also available! I personally did not find them spicy at all! They actually have a sweeter taste to them and are very popular with everyone, including little kids! I hope you enjoy them 🙂

  2. Hi there, I need to make these for my superbowl party tomorrow but I am making a 5lb bag of frozen meatballs. How long should I leave them in the crockpot for to cook along with the sauce??

    1. Hi there! I would recommend pre-cooking them in the oven according to the package directions and then tossing them into the crockpot for at least 30-45 minutes with the sauce. Hope you enjoy them! Happy Superbowl Sunday! 🙂
