Cranberry BBQ meatballs are my all time favorite because they are sweet and tangy and easy to pop in your mouth. They go so fast in my household that I couldn’t help but share, so here is how you make my favorite Cranberry BBQ meatballs.



  • Meatballs
  • 14 oz can cranberry sauce
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 C water
  • 1 C BBQ sauce
  • 12 oz cocktail sauce
  • Finely chopped onions for garnish


  1. Spray the bottom of the slow cooker lightly with cooking spray and add the meatballs.
  2. In a large bowl combine cranberry sauce, brown sugar, water, cocktail sauce, BBQ sauce. Once combined pour over the meatballs.
  3. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours.
  4. Sprinkle the finely chopped green onions if desired and serve!


Sometimes I put toothpicks because I like to grab and go. One thing I am grateful for is being brought up in the family that I did. I am lucky to have two strong women in my family: my mom and my grandma. I’ve learned so much from them, how to cook, bake, be independent and live my life. I have two incredible women I can call up and talk for hours about anything and everything.
