Just in case you are wondering, this is what Puffed Wheat looks like. You will find it in the cereal section at the grocery store.
Puffed Wheat Cake
½ cup dark corn syrup
½ cup butter
2 Tablespoons cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
8 cups plain puffed wheat
First, butter a 9×13 pan. Pour the puffed wheat into a large bowl. Trust me, the larger the bowl, the easier to stir and the less of a mess in the end! In a saucepan, bring brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, cocoa, and vanilla to a boil. Stir frequently so it doesn’t burn. The mixture will melt together and turn into a smooth chocolatey sauce. Now, pour the chocolate mixture over the puffed wheat. Gently mix together until the puffed wheat is coated evenly. Pour into prepared pan. Now use the back of a spatula and press, press, press the mixture down. Let cool. Cut into squares and enjoy!
See…. kind of like Rice Krispie Treats, only Canadian, chocolaty, and wheat!
