Grandma’s Goop

Grandma's Goop I Mommy Hates Cooking

Christmas time always brings back memories, and for me one of my fondest memories is making Goop with grandma.  I believe it was called Goop because it was my grandma’s way of cleaning out her cupboards.  She would literally take all the snack food she had such as cereals, pretzels, nuts and make what she called Goop.  Many will refer to this as a form of Chex Mix; however, hers never tasted like Chex Mix to me.

My sister and I would go over to her house, conveniently she lived around the block, and we would help her make the trash bags full of Goop.  Then, she would bag it up and take it to each family member.  I am sure most of my family waited each year for Goop, they all knew it was coming right along with her famous fudge!

I decided to make my own version of it recently.  It tasted really good; however, I will say hers still tasted better.

This is a very versatile recipe.  Each year our Goop had something different, I remember one year we had Trix in it and another year we had Honey-Comb cereal in it.  My grandma did not really care for measurements or moderation, which is why I believe it tasted so good.  She did not necessarily stick to 4 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce, she bathed the mixture in the sauce of whatever amount she thought was necessary.

Another thing she always did was turn this into a frugal gift for family members.  I used clear gift bags and then put a few cups of Goop in each bag, these make for delicious gifts!

The sky is the limit with Grandma’s Goop, take this recipe and run with it, and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Merry Christmas!
