Cranberry Meatball Appetizer -Little Dipper Crock Pot/Slow Cooker Option

I have to tell you folks, this tangy little Cranberry Meatball Appetizer disappeared in no time. I set it out before Sunday dinner and kinda think my crew wouldn't have minded if I had made a bigger batch and just called it dinner! Whether it's a football party, Thanksgiving gathering or a Christmas get-together, it doesn't get much easier than these tasty little meatballs with a seasonal twist. They will be well received:@)
I used store bought meatballs and my Little Dipper Crock Pot. 
For 7 oz of meatballs, a half batch of sauce was more than enough.
I'm guessing 20-24 oz or so of frozen meatballs would work for the full amount of sauce.
