scramble

AuthorHeather WallaceCategoryDifficultyBeginner

Every year my grandmother, mother and now myself make this Chex mix for Christmas.

It is a recipe that was handed down from my great-grandfather. We call it Scramble instead of Chex mix though.

Over the years I have made my own versions of it. The original recipe called for salad oil which I changed to butter. Usually, the recipe is doubled and tins are filled and gifted to friends and family as a little "goodie bag" to snack on. I remember many years my mother would fill tins with one side containing homemade fudge and the other half with the scramble and give them out as gifts.

It's not the holidays in my family without Scramble! My own little tradition is to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" while making it. So turn on your favorite Christmas movie and make up a batch this year!
