I was going to add my recipe for cocktail wieners but found this one that is very similar. The only difference in my recipe is that I add 2 Tbsp. of brown sugar and 1 Tbsp. lemon juice to the sauce. I have been making this for our church Christmas Cantata for years and I always take copies of the recipe with me because I am always asked for it. I was shocked at the low rating of this recipe because it is really a hit in my community. I also have a recipe that uses the grape jelly but we all agree that the cranberry sauce is much much better! Read More

I'm sorry but this was nasty (atleast to my family and the 2 other families at the party.) I had seen that everyone put them on their plates but noticed that noone was eating them. I tried one myself and I didn't even get it down before I spit it back out. I had to bring them all back home and in the trash they went. Normally we all like these lil' weinies...but I think it might have been the chili sauce. Yuk! Read More

Maybe it's a regional thing but this is a favorite appetizer in Wisconsin. I wouldn't use any other sauce for little weenies - Barbeque sauce is too thick...little weenies in a cranberry and chili sauce mix is always at a party and is always gone by the end of the night. Read More

Instead of cranberry sauce try adding grape jelly...about 4 to 5 tablespoons or to suit taste. Much better! Read More

Everyone enjoyed these! Kids and adults. I followed the recipe as is adding 2 T brown sugar and 1 T lemon juice as suggested by another reviewer. The ingredients sound a little strange but they meld together perfectly! Read More

These were very good. I usually just use BBQ sauce I like this better. I heated on the stove then transfered to a small crock pot Thanks. Read More

Made these over the holidays and they were a hit. I like to read other reviews for additional suggestions so i also added 2 tbsp brown sugar and 1 tbsp lemon juice. Think it gave them an extra kick. Will try them again. Read More
