We love to make chocolate puffed wheat squares at the BB4CK kitchen! To make these treats you will need:
½ cup butter
1 cup white sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
6 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 cup corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
10 cups puffed wheat
Combine butter, corn syrup, brown and white sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan. Heat the saucepan on a stove top, bringing the sugar mixture to a boil.
Remove from heat and add the vanilla, stir, then pour the chocolate mixture over the puffed wheat.
Mix well and press into a greased pan (9×13 works best for this recipe).
For a springtime twist, form a basket from the completed chocolate puffed wheat mixture using something round, like a 1 or 1/2 cup mixing cup, and fill with chocolate eggs or colourful marshmallows!
