  1. Grease a 9x13-inch pan. Place puffed wheat in a large heat-proof bowl; set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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® treats do. In fact these are even better after they sit for a day.

I loved this recipe! Took my time and heated the ingredients slowly until it was smooth. Makes a generous 9x13. Was gone in no time!

My husband asked me to make puffed wheat squares for him as they were his favourite growing up. I found this recipe. He says he would rate them 10/10

It was easy and perfect!

No changes, great squares!
