  • 48 frozen meatballs
  • 12 oz Chili Sauce 1 jar
  • 18 oz Sweet Orange Marmalade 1 jar
  • 14 oz Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce 1 can
  • 17.3 oz puff pastry 1 box - thawed


  • Combine the first four ingredients in a 5 qt slow cooker. Stir gently to combine.
  • Cook on low for 5 to 8 hours, high for 2 to 4 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Lightly spray a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • Gently roll out the puff pastry and cut into squares. Cut along the fold and then cut each third into four pieces.
  • Gently press into the prepared pan and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Use the back of a wooden spoon to press the center down - it will be all puffed up.
  • One box of puff pastry yields 24 cups. Buy 2 boxes if you want cups for all your meatballs.
