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.
