Puffed Wheat Squares


April 26, 2017


1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup Roger's Golden syrup or corn syrup

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup cocoa

pinch salt

1 tsp. vanilla

8 cups puffed wheat (or 7 cups puffed wheat and 1 cup salted peanuts!)


1Lightly spray the inside of a large bowl with nonstick spray. Put the puffed wheat (and peanuts, if you’re using them) into the bowl and set it aside.

2In a small saucepan, combine the butter, corn syrup, brown sugar, cocoa and salt over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour over the puffed wheat and stir to coat evenly. Press into an ungreased 9 x 13-inch pan and refrigerate or leave at room temperature until set. These are easiest to cut (and taste best) at room temperature.

3Makes about 20 squares.
