What do you do when you're craving some sweet baking and have NO FLOUR?
Three words: puffed wheat squares.
I whipped these up at about 9:00pm last night and they most definitely hit the spot. I forgot how easy and delicious these are! Throw some puffed wheat in a bowl, heat your choco mixture on the stove, mix it up and eat! If you're patient you can let them set in the fridge for awhile but, take it from me, they are still tasty all warm and crumbly!
Chocolatey, wheaty goodness. The perfect late night snack. Okay and I might have had them for breakfast today too... puffed wheat is sort of cereal, right?
And courtesy of the bag of Safeway Puffed Wheat here's the recipe:
8 cups puffed wheat
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1) Measure puffed wheat into large bowl.
2) Combine remaining ingredients into saucepan. Stir continuously over medium heat until mixture boils.
Boil 1 minute and remove from heat.
3) Pour mixture over puffed wheat and mix well.
4) Pour and press into a greased 9x9 pan.
EAT and ENJOY!
