Nope, not the game, but the food.  Have you heard of it?  Most people haven't.  I really have no idea where it came from, but it was always made by my grandmother at Christmas time.  My mother carried on the tradition for us growing up, and now I make it every year starting right after Thanksgiving.  Looks a lot like Chex Mix, but tastes a whole lot better.

2 lbs. Mixed nuts (added last)
12 oz shredded wheat (we use wheat Chex)
10.5 oz Cheerios
6.5 oz Rice Chex
6.5 oz pretzel bits (we use Corn Chex here)
5.5 oz pretzel sticks

2 C Mazzola Corn Oil
2 T Worcestershire sauce

1 T garlic salt
1 T season salt

What to do:
In a large roasting pan, combine cereals and pretzels.  Sprinkle garlic salt and season salt over mixture.  Wisk corn oil and worcestershire sauce together.  Pour all over dry mixture.  Add mixed nuts last and give a good stir.  Place lid on roaster.

Set oven to 275*.  Scrabble will be in the oven for a total of 3 hours.  Remove and stir every 30 minutes and replace in oven until the 3 hours are up.


  1. so...it's been a while since I made Chex Mix...but this seems so similar. What makes the delicious flavor difference?

  2. I believe Chex Mix is made with onion powder, garlic powder and butter. The Scrabble flavor isn't quite so powerful up front and has a real roasted taste to it. I honestly have never made Chex Mix, I've only had it from the bag.


Give pointers or praise or just say 'hi'. Go on...
