Hi! I’m Mickey Corporon and I work as a Talent Support Rep/Office Manager in the New York office! I moved to New York from Missouri 10 years ago and when I’m not working I love to take advantage of what the city has to offer! I love trying new restaurants (the all glassed-in one that overlooks Lincoln center is super cool!), seeing Broadway shows (Matilda is the best one so far this year), and seeing weird and cool things that are available here (Jim Hensons’ Muppet exhibit and the Terracotta warriors! They uncovered a whole Terracotta Warrior temple that was BURIED UNDERGROUND. WHAT?!…) My mom does not cook. In fact my mom has burner covers glued over the stove top burners with this really intricate floral display on top of it that would take 30 minutes to move. BUT she does bake like a demon! This Scramble mix is like Chex mix on steroids. She used to make it only at Christmas, but when I moved here she would eat a box of cereal, then make “Scramble”( as we call it) and fill the empty cereal box with it and mail it to me. Because she is awesome. It was always an amazing day and I would dole out handfuls to my friends who would start begging as soon as they saw the cereal box in my mail pile. And then I would eat the rest of the box in one hour. Try it once and you will be hooked for life!
Phyllis Corporons’ Scramble (DO NOT CALL IT CHEX MIX. CHEX MIX IS SO FAR BELOW THIS YOU CANNOT EVEN SEE IT FROM UP HERE.)
You will need:
- 6 Tablespoons Real Butter,
- 2 Tablespoons. Lea & Perrin Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 and 3/4 teaspoons Mrs. Dash table blend
- 1 cup mixed nuts ( I use walnuts, pecans, etc. no peanuts)
- 1 cup bite size pretzels
- 10 cups of assorted cereals: Corn Chex, Wheat Chex, Rice Chex, Kix, Cheerios ( Multi-grain Cherrios are good too) the Kix add just a little sweet to the mix.
- Melt butter, add Worcestershire sauce and Mrs. Dash. stir them together well.
- Stir all dry ingredients together well ( I put them in a bag and shake them up) Then put them in the roaster or cake pan.
- Pour the butter mixture over the dry mix, stir to coat with butter
- Bake in 250 degree oven for one hour, stirring every 15 min. Let cool for one hour if you can wait. Store in an air tight container, will stay fresh for at least a week if it lasts that long. Enjoy!!!
HINT: I usually double this recipe, so it will last a bit longer, but not much!
