Last Minute Home-Made Gift Sweet Scrabble

By Kendall Oberto

Scrabble/ Sweet

This recipe originated with my dear friend’s mom, Toodie who passed
away just this last week. She was a consummate cook and
entertainer, and we will miss her beyond measure. Rest in peace my
dear friend.
This is a snacking favorite that I only dare make at the holidays (lest
we consume it all year). Package it up in cute containers with a
recipe card and it makes a wonderful homemade gift.
This recipe makes an enormous batch (3 FULL gallon Ziplock
bags). If you don’t end up giving it away, Scrabble freezes very well
so just go for it, and you will have enough for the whole holiday
season. Be careful, it can be addicting. See below for a sweet
version of this crunchy wonder


  • 6 oz pecan halves
  • 6 oz whole cashews
  • 4 cups rice chex
  • 4 cups crispix

Sweet Sauce

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp vanilla


  • Mix cereal and nuts and lay out in jelly roll pan or sheet pan with
    Melt butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. Bring to a boil for 1 minute,
    stirring constantly, remove from heat. Immediately drizzle mixture
    over cereal mix and stir gently. Bake in 250-degree oven for 1 hour,
    stirring every 15 minutes.
    Happy Eating!!
