Puffed Wheat Cake

I had a hankering today, for good old puffed wheat cake. Man it has been years since I have had one.

My mom used to make it when we were kids.
I love it… It is so easy!

I whipped up a batch; we ate more than half the pan before I even had a chance to take a picture!

What you need,

6 cups puffed wheat cereal
1/3 cup butter
½ cup white corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 heaping tablespoons cocoa

Heat the butter, sugar and corn syrup over medium high heat until boiling. Let I bubble for a full minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and cocoa powder. Press mixture into a greased pan and let it set for an hour, if you can wait that long!

This is a total classic. I am glad the bag of puffed wheat cereal is huge because we have eaten this cake so fast I am going to need to make another one ASAP!
