This throwback recipe is from my Nana. It’s a simple and sweet recipe that is highly addictive – my mom has been known to polish off an entire pan’s worth without even realizing it! It’s chewy, like rice crispy squares, with a hint of cocoa. This recipe is as simple as making rice crispy squares.
Cocoa Wheat Puffs Tips:
- Instead of buttering a baking sheet, try lining it with parchment or wax paper, the squares will lift out just as easily. Also, if you use a piece of wax paper in your hand to press the puffed wheat mixture flat, your hands won’t get sticky!
- Spray the inside of a measuring cup with nonstick cooking spray before measuring the corn syrup. This will make the corn syrup easily slide out of the measuring cup, leaving nothing behind.
