Cocktail Weiner Recipe

This cocktail weiner recipe is one that we made for my Dad’s 80th birthday party.  We decided to go with finger foods and appetizers and the cocktail weiner recipe fit right in.  We set out a buffet of croissants, chicken salad, ham salad, potato skins, pickles, olives, carrot and celery sticks, cookies, banana bread, sheet cake, and several other such foods.  We kept it casual so people could serve themselves and everyone could spend their time visiting and not worry about the food. 

We did the cocktail weiner recipe in a crockpot and it worked out just great.  It was one of the most popular items there and we noticed people coming back for seconds and thirds.  The cocktail weiner recipe was a hit and it was very easy to make.  Certainly a fix it and forget it dish.

The simplicity and convenience of this cocktail weiner recipe makes it a good choice for serving at your Super Bowl party.  People really like it and you can even make it with different kinds of sauce if you are having a lot of people over and want some variety.  Serve cocktail weiners with toothpicks as is shown in the video below or a fork works just fine too.   

There are many, many variations on the cocktail weiner recipe.  I’ll show you a few of them here on this page, including the one that we used for our party which is just below.

Ingredients for Cocktail Weiner Recipe

1 jar of grape jelly, 8 oz.
1 jar of chili sauce, 12 oz.

Put the jelly and the chili sauce into your slow cooker and stir.  Don’t worry about getting it perfect because when you turn the heat on it will melt nicely.

Stir it and turn down the heat.

Cocktail wieners are sometimes rather pricey. To keep the cost down you can buy whatever regular size hot dogs are on sale and cut them in pieces about the size of cocktail wieners.
