"This is a very old sweet and sour cocktail recipe; I remember looking forward to it as a kid at my Mom's holiday parties. It will look horrible and smell worse when first in the pan, but just wait. Don't ever tell what's in the sauce until after your guests have tasted it (otherwise they'll never try it). Serve with toothpicks; keep warm with a fondue pot. " — Ann Marie

This is really popular at our family gatherings. We've made it using cranberry sauce instead of grape jelly with absolutely awsome results. Ann Marie is right.... don't tell your guests what's in the sauce or they won't try it. The best part is it only takes minutes to prepare and can be done very easily in the microwave.
I like these better wrapped in crescent dough, each triangle cut in half lengthwise, baked until golden brown, then dip them in the jelly and mustard mixture or duck sauce mixed with hot mustard.
The ingredients sound really gross together, but they make the BEST appetizers. Guests will be begging for more and for the recipe.
My grandmother used to make this recipe and I was sorry that we had lost it when we lost her. I didn't realize how easy it was to make but was a big hit with the family this Christmas. Personally I don't eat cocktail franks or any meat for that matter but for those who do this is an easy and tasty recipe. I melted the jelly and mustard on the stove and then transferred everything to a crockpot. My husband ate the leftovers for several days (I used three pounds of wieners.)
This is very similiar to a family recipe we use. Instead of mustard we use Heinz Chili Sauce (comes in a glass jar like the cocktail sauce).
My husband's family used to make this all the time and he turned me onto them. We use currant jelly instead of the grape jelly and kilebasa sausage instead of the cocktail wieners. Definitely don't tell people what's in it prior to them trying it - I was very skeptical before I tried it, but it is good!
I thought it was good but a bit sweet. I think I would have liked it better with chili sauce instead of mustard.
A bit wierd and smelly while cooking, but ultimately was delicious!
