  • 9 cups plain puffed wheat cereal (not the sugar-coated variety)
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • a pinch of sea salt


  • Measure the puffed wheat cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
  • Grease a 9-inch by 13-inch rectangular baking pan and line it with parchment paper (if desired).
  • In a medium pan on the stove, over medium-low heat, add the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt.
  • Using a whisk, gently stir the mixture together as everything melts and comes to a soft boil.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and pour the mixture over the puffed wheat cereal. Stir everything together very well with a spatula.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared pan and place in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  • Slice and serve, or store in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to serve.


Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
