Frankenstein Eyes - Meatballs in Cranberry Chili Sauce

Meatballs are always a crowed pleaser! We used frozen meatballs and cooked them all day in this yummy sauce.

1 can Whole Cranberry Sauce
12 oz. Chili Sauce
1/2 - 3/4 C. Brown Sugar
1 Tbl. Lemon Juice

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan with a lid and heat. Add meatballs and allow to cook for 2-3 hours before serving.

To Make Eyes: Either attach a sliced olive (black or green) with a toothpick, sour cream, or by digging out a little bit of the meatball so the olive slice can sit inside the hole. If creating a fun display for your halloween guests try serving these yummy eyes out of a large glass jar with long skewers your guests can use to get the meatballs out!
