Easy to make Puff Wheat Sqaures

Puff Wheat Square are so easy to make.

  • 8 cups of Puffed Wheat
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of corn syrup or honey
  • 1/4th cup of coco powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt

Measure out your puff wheat into a bowl, butter grease a 9 by 12 cake pan or if you want really high puff’s a 9 by 9 pan (Grease it well).

In a pot, add your butter, corn syrup ( I used my own homemade kind so I know its non-gmo) or add your honey, sugar, salt and coco powder at medium heat. Mix it with a whisk as it melts down and bring it to a simmering boil..

Pour it over your puffed wheat and mix it though with a wooden spoon.. pour it into your pan, use a little bit of butter on your finger to push off the last bits into the pan.. butter up your hands and with care (its hot folks) push it down and flatten into the pan.. if you are worried butter up your spoon and you can do the same thing.. it just takes a bit longer and more butter that way, where you feel more with your (clean washed hands) to do it that way.

You need to compress the mixture so that it can “set” in the pan and will be cut into squares for yummy snacking.. its sweet, its a touch salty, its crunchy.. Its a old school treat from my childhood.

    Oh my, haven’t had these treats since I was a child [perhaps it is a prairie thing] – thanks for sharing and stimulating wonderful memories

  2. Used to love having a bowl of puffed wheat for breakfast before school: )

  3. Using a mixture of melted butter and olive oil gives a guilt-free flavoured nonstick; ). I like to use my egg flipper(spatula) for flattening sticky squares, graham crumb for crusts, etc.

    • Never thought to mix it with olive oil. interesting and yes, most folks use a flipper but I am very hand on girl.. I love to butter up my hands and work with things by touch 🙂

      • I just seem to get a better result to get them to stay together by using one hand on the actual handle and the other right on top of the flipper. Now for popcorn balls or “ball-form” cookies like Crackle Tops, well that’s another story; )

  4. Oh – a flash back to my childhood. Happy times. Thanks for this.
