Scrabble {aka Chex Mix}


We have made 4 double recipes of Scrabble {aka Chex Mix} around here this holiday season already!  In our defense, 2 batches were for a friend and we have given away the majority of the other 2 batches.  This is how we make ours {the directions below are for a huge double batch}...

The stuff

Mix 1 bag Corn Chex, 1 bag Rice Chex, 1 bag Wheat Chex, 1 bag Crispex, 1 bag of pretzel sticks, 2.5 pound nuts, 1 box Cheese Its and 2 bags goldfish {I used 1 original and 1 mixed-up}.  Then mix up 4 c. canola oil, 4 T. Worcestershire, 4 T. Lawry's and 2 t. garlic powder...

The Sauce

We mix ours up like this...

Mixing

I put all the cereal in a garbage bag and "shake it up"!  I then pour the oil mixture in and "shake it all about" again!  I pour the mixture into 2 huge pans...

ready to bake

Then bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes {I also switch the pans round after stirring}...

2 hours

I leave mine in the oven to cool down over night.  {Please excuse my oven, I am going to set it on self-clean in the am.}  Then you can bag it up for all your friends and neighbors...

Bagged up

Trust me...they will love you for it!  We also included it in our holiday goodie basket for our teachers...
