Sweet heat meatballs

2 lbs. frozen, pre­-cooked meatballs
½ cup molasses
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
1 teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne
½ cup water
1 can (8 oz.) crushed pineapple
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Over medium high heat, bring the water to a boil.  Add molasses, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, chili powder, cayenne, crushed pineapple and Worcestershire sauce and stir to combine.  Add in meatballs and stir to coat evenly.  Reduce heat to medium and simmer until the sauce reduces, about 10 minutes.  Skewer with bamboo sticks and serve hot with or without sauce reduction.

I made these in the crockpot for a NYE party.  After coating the meatballs with the sauce evenly, I just dumped them in the crock and set it on low for a few hours, until the party started.  The taste was smooth and all of the meatballs were gone by midnight.
