Puffed Wheat Squares

Would you believe that until now, I have NEVER made Puffed Wheat Squares?  Seriously!  I don't really remember my Mom making them when I was a kid (though I am sure she did), but I do remember having puffed wheat squares, and that I loved them.

I was out grocery shopping the other night and happened to be in the cereal aisle (looking for some wheat bran for baking).  I came across some organic puffed wheat, immediately remembered puffed wheat squares, and figured it was time I make some and see if my family likes them.  Here is the recipe that I used:

Puffed Wheat Squares (Source:
Kamut Puffed Wheat Squares | Addicted to Recipes

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
8 cups organic puffed wheat

Butter a 9 x 13 pan.

In a large saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, cocoa powder and vanilla.  Bring to a slow, rolling boil.

Remove from heat and add in the puffed wheat.  Stir to combine.

Press into the prepared pan.  Cool and cut into squares.

3 out of 4 in our family liked these.  They were just how I remember them from childhood.  Our oldest wasn't a big fan, but our toddler...look out.  He was screeching for more!  I think he has a bit of a sweet tooth, just like his Mama!


  1. This post brought back so many memories! My mom used to have to hide these from us on top of the fridge lol

    Thanks so much for this!

  2. I haven't had puff wheat cake for a long long time. It just isn't the same here in the states... I need my Canadian ingredients ... Fry's cocoa and the puff wheat. Thanks for bringing me back down memory lane.
