What I Learned This Week

Ok get a pencil and paper ready because this lesson is profound... go ahead I'll wait.

(Insert Rod Stewart hold music here)

Good you're back. I learned from my 12 year old niece that when you make puffed wheat squares you should get out your big pot. Cook up all of the ingredients in the pot. Remove from heat and then add your puffed wheat. Eliminating the need to dirty a bowl before pressing the squares into a pan! Brilliant don't you think?

* Butter or hard margarine ~ 1/3 cup
* Corn syrup ~ 1/2 cup
* Brown sugar packed ~ 2/3 cup
* Cocoa ~ 2 TBS
* Vanilla Flavouring ~ 1 TSP
* Puffed Wheat ~ 8 cups
Combine the butter or margarine, syrup, brown sugar, cocoa and vanilla flavouring in a big pot. Stir continually on medium heat until it starts to boil with bubbles all over the surface. Remove the saucepan to the hot pad.

Measure puffed wheat into the pot. Mix together and press into a greased pan.
Cut into squares when cool.

For more great lessons head on over to Musings of a Housewife.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking the time to leave me such encouraging words! I am thankful the Lord used it to bless you and speak to your heart.

Thanks for the recipe! I think I will try it with Puffed Rice...my brother is allergic to gluten, so I'm always on the lookout for recipes that can be made gluten free.

Bless you, sweet Sarah...I enjoyed visiting you tonight. Trying to catch up with my favorites!
