When my family was down for the wedding we were talking about truly Canadian food. Canada is really a melting pot of cultures, so it was hard to pinpoint what food was "Canadian." A couple weeks ago I wanted to make some treats to take down to the cattle sale in Oklahoma. Puffed Wheat Squares seemed like the perfect solution. Expect for the fact that the Boy and none of my friends had never heard of them!
As I began to describe what a Puffed Wheat Square was the Boy's mom said like a Rice Crispy Square - well kind of. Puffed Wheat Squares are a stable at every Canadian bake sale, school lunch and farmer's kitchen.
Puffed Wheat Squares from the Family Cookbook
Puff Wheat - 8 cups - find this in the cereal isle
Brown Sugar - 1 cup
Butter or Margarine - 1/2 cup
Corn Syrup - 1/2 cup
Cocoa Powder - 4 Tbsp.
Vanilla - 1 tsp.
Mix all the ingredients except the puffed wheat in a pot. Bring to a boil and boil for 1/2-1 minute. Add the puff wheat and stir. Caution the mixture will be very hot. Put into a greased pan, and let set. Boom Puffed Wheat Squares are serves.
Everything melting and mixing together.
I also have to show off this awesome customized pan we got for our wedding.
