These Puffed Wheat Squares are a classic dessert right out of childhood! This No-Bake, simple to make treat is a crowd pleaser!

Who remembers puffed wheat squares from their childhood?! Puffed wheat squares are the best! My mom used to make them for my sister & I when we were young, and now I make them for my own kids. And every time I make them, I’m reminded how much I really love this little treat…but they have to be soft. No hard as a rock puffed wheat squares are accepted over here! I like them pull-apart soft and chewy, so I actually add a little less than the recommended amount of puffed wheat.
Chocolatey. Soft. Chewy. Delicious. I could eat the whole pan. For real. I have to keep these up on the high shelf because I actually can’t resist them.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

In a saucepan over low/medium heat, bring the butter, corn syrup, sugars and cocoa powder to a low boil. Stir continuously.
Once the mixture comes to a boil, remove it from the heat, and stir in the vanilla.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the puffed wheat, and mix well.
Press the mixture into a greased 8 x 8 inch pan.
