Chocolate Puffed Wheat Squares


These are my chocolatey alternative for rice crispy squares, and they are soooo easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup golden corn syurp
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 heaping cups puffed wheat cereal

Directions:

  1. Scoop 8 heaping cups of puffed wheat cereal into a large bowl; set aside.
  2. Place margarine, cocoa, brown sugar, syrup, vanilla into a pot and stir over med/high heat until combined.
  3. Let mixture boil for 1-2 minutes. *DO NOT boil for too long or else the bars will become rock hard.
  4. Remove the pot and pour the hot mixture over the cereal.  Toss cereal until combined and press into a greased 8×8 dish.

Let cool and cut into squares. 🙂

Makes 9 – 12 good sized squares.

Enjoy,

Crystal
