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. Although I must say (yes I know how this sounds;) the flavour improved by the second and third one! The kids loved them but then they would eat just about anything if it was smeared in chocolate!
