A great appetizer to use in Crock Pots, chafing dish or fondue!

*I only use Hillshire Farms "Little Smokies".

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This little smokies recipe is perfect if you're looking for an easy appetizer. The sauce has everything in it - sweetness from the brown sugar, sour from the orange juice, and tanginess from the mustard. When the brown sugar melts into the orange juice it creates a superb glaze. These aren't your typical BBQ smokies. Thanks to the glaze, there's a little sophistication to this super simple Crock Pot little smokies recipe. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Drema's Orange Glaze Cocktail Weiners

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat and prepare a Crock Pot, chaffing dish or fondue pot to lowest setting.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar, flour, and mustard.
  3. Make a well and gradually add in vinegar and orange juice. Stir well.
  4. Transfer to Crock Pot or heat source.
