Honey Garlic Meatballs

These sweet and spicy slow cooker meatballs flavored with honey, chile-garlic sauce, and five-spice powder are easy to throw together and are a little different than all the other cocktail meatball appetizer recipes out there. You can adjust the heat level by adding more or less chili sauce.
