Honey buffalo wings might get kicked to the curb after trying these savory meatballs. Slow cooked and simmered in their own sweet and tangy sauce, these meatballs are the perfect meal for after a long day, or even as a starter you can pick up with a toothpick. They're packed with flavor so no matter the occasion, you're sure to enjoy them.
These meatballs are also very easy to make, and you can even prepare all the ingredients the night before and leave them in the fridge for the next day. Prep time is about 20 minutes, and they take about two hours in the slow cooker.

Then throw the rest of your meatballs in with the rest of the sauce.
5. Finally, cover and cook on low for 2 hours. Be sure to go and stir it all together again about an hour into it - and give it a taste. You might want to add more hot sauce - and about a tablespoon and a half will do.
