Cocktail Weenies: Party Ideas

At my house, we cannot watch the Super Bowl without a batch of Cocktail Weenies.  I’m not sure what it is about men but they are drawn, like magnets, to those little weenies and toothpicks.  Do they love the flavor or is it the fun of eating food with toothpicks?

These are so easy to make and can be made the day ahead, then reheated for the party.  Enjoy!

    Never heard of Cocktail Weenies before! Something we don’t have in Sweden apparently. :-) Cocking for 4 hours! I’m impressed!

    It’s not a big hit with vegetarians like me, but my husband and our friends like it!

    These are the best for game day treats. I swear I could just eat snacks all day and be happy. Thanks for following me on Twitter!

    Is the recipe correct in the “2” 28oz. Packages?

      Good catch Cristine…it should be 2 x 14oz packages, but 1 x 32oz package works just as well. If you like more sauce, just add more bourbon…!
