One of my friends mentioned that she craved, and made, these this past month; which of course made me want some myself. I love these squares...
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
8 - 9 cups puffed wheat (un-sugared)
Two different brands of puffed wheat I have found in the United States so far!
Melt butter in saucepan. Add syrup, sugar, cocoa, and vanilla. Bring to boil and boil for 1 -2 minutes. Any more than this will make them too crispy and crunchy.
Butter a 9 x 13 pan.
Place puffed wheat into a large bowl and mix with sauce. Press into buttered pan.
Let cool and cut into squares!
