Chocolate Puffed-Wheat Squares

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"I used to make a batch of these every two days for my cafe. They were extremely popular and always sold out. A delicious and light chocolate square that packs well in lunches. I like to make for Halloween treats by simply scattering Reese's pieces over the top and pushing into top of square while still warm in pan. Enjoy!"

I loved the chocolate mixture and would definitely try this again with a more crisp cereal like rice krispies or cornflakes. The puffed wheat became chewy and tasted bland with the chocolate. Al...

I only used 10 cups of cereal and wound up with a dry overly cocoa'd pan in the end
