This is one of my most popular appetizers at any party and they are so easy to make it’s easy on the cook.
Cut your Kielbasa or Pepperoni into 1/4 inch thick nickel slices (crosswise -- not lengthwise) and put into a pan. The amount you use depends totally on the number of people you are going to serve. WARNING -- these go fast and people love them -- so plan on at least 6 slices per person.
Cover with maple syrup and simmer at a slow boil for a minimum of 1/2 an hour. The fat will all boil out and you will be left with a wonderful chewy spicy bite! Serve with toothpicks and make sure you warn people that they are “extremely Hot.” They can be served in a crock pot or fondue pot to keep them hot for a very long time -- but they usually don’t last long enough to warrant it!
