These are great for the holidays or special occasions. I am always asked to bring these for our office parties and they are the first to go.

I exchanged 5 oz of the ketchup for bbq sauce and added 5 drops of tabasco sauce. I had read that someone thought it was to ketchupy and what I did corrected that. They went fast! Read More

I did not care for this at all. Too much katchup flavor. I ended up putting more brown sugar in to it and reheated it. This was very salty so I feel I need to balance out the salt with more sugar. I do like the cinnamon and cloves but I'll have to find another way to incorporate the spices within a different recipe. Read More

I got the courage to go with this recipe with the unusual ingredients of cinnamon and cloves.... glad I did. This is slightly different from your typical BBQ sauce type dish - and certainly not Italian. Rather a tangy/sweet flavor. Since this was an appetizer for a pot luck party - wasn't looking for a meal - rather tidbits with a different flavor. It was a hit........ Read More

Yum! I made it exactly how stated and love the taste. It's different than the typical bbq sauce & jelly recipe that people tend to do but in a very good way. Everything blends together nicely and it's not ketchupy at all. I always make this in a crock-pot since I bring this to my work pot-lucks. I mix all the sauce ingredients in a seperate bowl and pour over the Lit'l Smokies then stir to coat them. I cover and turn on high for about 2 hours until heated through and then turn to low to keep warm while serving all while stirring occasionally. It's a keeper in my recipe collection!! Read More

Delicious! I was skeptical of the cinnamon and cloves but they really made the sauce tasty. I doubled all the ingredients except for the ketchup and it wasn't too ketchupy tasting. My husband (a huge little smokie fan) loved it! Read More

I have always used bottled bbq sauce to make lil smokies but these were really good and very easy. I added some garlic and onion powders. I will probably make them like this from now on! Thanks. Read More

It was okay. Better after many hours of soaking in the sauce. It still carried that ketchup taste. Not sure what I'd do differently. Great in a pinch since most of the ingredients are in your kitchen. Read More
