It’s not a Party without the little smokies. This recipe for Slow Cooker Molasses Barbecue Little Smokies has a great sauce that you’ll love.
What’s great about this recipe is that you can leave it on low or warm for hours and hours during the party and they just get better! They start to soak up even more flavor as the party goes on. I also make an apple butter version of these smokies.
My sister-in-law makes these lit’l smokies for our family get-togethers. They all quickly disappear, they are that good. My daughter Lola always asks if Auntie Annesha is making these smokies for every party. I’ve had to learn how to make them for the parties Auntie Annesha is not at!
I get the Lit’l smokies that have beef, turkey, and pork in them, I like the flavor of them. Choose whichever is your favorite though! I usually serve these with toothpicks but the last party I brought these to, everyone scooped them on to their plate with the rest of their food and ate them with a fork, probably can eat them faster that way. 🙂
