One of our favourite chocolatey treats has to be puffed wheat squares. These seem to be loved by most people. Little wheat puffs covered in chocolate and made into squares. So good! These are no-bake, so dangerous that they can be made in minutes.
I first learned how to make these squares in highschool chemistry. What a great way to teach kids on the importance of measurement, right? Doing something out of the box, eating delicious treats, and learning all at the same time.
These squares are easy to whip up so perfect for a picnic or a school treat.
