Chocolate Puff Wheat Squares

So I love puff wheat squares. Even eating them is fun if you're like me and like to eat your puff wheat squares one puff at a time. : )
Well, over the summer I asked my mother to show me how to make them back before I had learnt how to bake things by myself (and also before I knew how to take a picture). Anyways, last night I was cleaning the kitchen and when I put away a casserole dish, I noticed a shelf that I had never seen before. Seriously, it's like I had been blind to it my whole life. It was full of little binders, old books with yellowing pages, and a small floral box full of little recipe cards. Yay, I finally know the recipe for making puff wheat squares and I can put up this post which I created months ago before I even finished designing this blog. 

Chocolate Puff Wheat Squares
-8 cups of puffed wheat* (you can usually find this in the cereal aisle)
-1 cup brown sugar
-1/3 cup butter
-1/2 cup corn syrup
-2 tbs cocoa
-1 tsp vanilla
*for special results only put in 7 cups of puffed wheat.
The ingredients.
Making puff wheat squares is actually really easy to do. Put everything except for the puff wheat into a pot and melt them together until they begin to bubble.
Then pour the whole mixture into a large bowl containing the puff wheat. Make sure it is a huge bowl, otherwise you'll have puff wheats flying everywhere.
Then put the whole thing into a lightly greased pan and pop it into the fridge to harden. 
OMG, look at that picture! Wow, I really had no idea how to frame a picture back then. Okay, just had to get that off my chest.

  1. Omgosh... that looks delish! I'm slightly sensitive to wheat so I'll try substituting 'em which some rice bubbles! Hopefully it'll work! :D
