Introducing tender, juicy Slow Cooker Honey Buffalo Meatballs simmered in the most tantalizing sweet heat sauce that everyone will go crazy for! Perfect appetizer or delicious, stress-free, make-ahead meal with rice – or both!
I choose both. I made these meatballs twice in the last two weeks to get the sauce absolutely perfect. The first time we devoured them for dinner with rice – Ah-mazing. The second time, I brought them to a friend’s birthday party where everyone practically begged me for the recipe. Everyone, beg no more.
These meatballs are a cross between my crazy popular Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Cranberry Meatballs I posted last year and my beloved Honey Buffalo Hot Wings. Both ridiculously delicious and easy, always crowd pleasers, and both seeping with sweet heat so it only made sense to combine the two for an easy, intoxicating delicious meatball AKA Honey Buffalo Meatballs!
The meatballs themselves are incredibly tender, juicy, and flavorful from an easy splash of spices. The spices make the ingredient list seem somewhat lengthy, but they just take seconds to throw in and take these meatballs all the way to the end zone; smother them in Honey Buffalo Sauce and you have a touchdown.
The sauce is s simple whisking of Frank’s Original Hot Sauce, honey, brown sugar, apricot preserves and a splash of soy sauce that simmers with the meatballs for an appetizer that is nothing short of addicting or, as previously discussed, the perfect dinner so you can eat them all the time.
Another winning aspect of these meatballs is you can completely customize their heat by adding more hot sauce to taste at the end of cooking so they can be more honey or more buffalo. Either way, these irresistible Honey Buffalo Meatballs will have you licking your lips, and strongly tempted to lick the slow cooker itself. I won’t judge.
