Spicy & sweet molasses meatballs are easy to make, and oh-so good for appetizers at a party or game day.


1-2 lbs of Frozen, pre-cooked Meatballs. I really suggest using frozen for this recipe! You could make your own meatballs however, I think the cooking time necessary for the raw beef, and the added juice and fat, would mess with the outcome and thickness of the Molasses Glaze.

1 cup Molasses

1/2 cup Brown Sugar

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

1 tsp. Chile Powder

1 tsp. Ground Ginger

1 pinch of Cayenne..to taste

1/2 cup water


In a large pot, simmer the Water,Molasses, Brown Sugar, Cayenne, Chile Powder, Garlic Powder and Ground Ginger, just until it’s blended…

Add in the Meatballs, making sure that they’re evenly coated in the sauce.  Let them simmer until they’re heated/cooked through.  They’ll take on the most beautiful, rich, deep color and flavor!  Make sure to stir them so they’re evenly coated and so the sauce thickens up without burning…

Pour the remaining Molasses reduction into a dish and use for extra drizzling

Enjoy! :)
