If you find it hardens too much reduce the time you boil the syrup. The syrup acts like candy syrup. The longer it boils the hotter it gets and the harder it is when it cools down.

I am only going to say use 6 cups of puffed wheat way to dry

sooo good, I didn't find it too chewy or hard as another reviewer commented but that can also depend on how long you cook your mixture...as soon as it starts to bubble, you are good to go.

It was good, but I cooked it less than recommended so it wasn't rock-hard. A good treat to whip up for a play date!

Good, but they are a little dry.

Perfect recipe to take to anywhere

Very yummy and easy for kids to make. Definitely reduce boiling time to 2-3 minutes if you like them chewy, and not too hard. I also added an extra tbsp of cocoa.
