Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Grease a 9x13-inch pan. Place puffed wheat in a large heat-proof bowl; set aside.

  • Bring corn syrup, white sugar, butter, cocoa powder, and brown sugar to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Remove cocoa mixture from heat; stir in vanilla extract. Pour cocoa mixture over puffed wheat cereal; stir until well combined.

  • Press puffed wheat mixture into prepared pan. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.

Cook's Note:

Take the time to mix well; they don't set up super fast like Rice Krispies(R) treats do. In fact these are even better after they sit for a day.
