Crock Pot Cranberry Smokies

If you love simple appetizers you will also love this Olive Nut Spread. It’s wonderful on wheat thins or small rolls.


The taste of the little smokies with the chili sauce and cranberry sauce is delicious. It’s so easy which is always a plus and you don’t need any extra stuff when serving. You can easily leave it in the crock pot, set you some toothpicks and it’s perfect for a party.


  • Little Cocktail Smokies
  • Chili Sauce
  • Cranberry Sauce


You can always use grape jelly and many people have in the past but we do love the cranberry flavor too.


This really doesn’t need a “how to make” section since you just dump everything in the crock pot. That is how simple this is.


Step 1
Open can of cranberry sauce and dump everything in the crock pot! That easy! We do use 2 packages of the smokies, so 24 ounces. We couldn’t find the larger package when I was remaking this recipe.


The little smokies come cooked, so they really just have to heat up with the chili sauce and cranberry sauce. You just want them to have time to marinate in the sauce. You can put these in any size crock pot, just be aware if its a large one and the smokies are shallow, they will cook much faster and could burn. So you will want to stir them.


Someone commented you can add a can of pineapple, we have never tried that, but it sure sounds delicious.


These easy appetizers go great with our Amish Onion Patties or Hot Artichoke Dip! You can easily double this recipe.

Crock Pot Cranberry Smokies


Are little smokies the same as cocktail sausages?

Yes, they are the same.

Where do you find these in the grocery store?

We always find them near the smoked sausage section.


These will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days in a air tight container and you can reheat in the microwave or in the crock pot.
