Chocolate Marshmallow Puffed Wheat Squares

This is one of Scott’s all-time favourite desserts! From vending machines to bake sales, he is always picking the puffed wheat square as his dessert or snack of choice!

We tried to make a version using corn syrup and brown sugar, which was very good, but we found the texture to be crunchier than the soft, gooey squares Scott is so fond of. After some experimentation, we decided to replace those two ingredients with marshmallows just like Rice Krispies Squares!

The outcome was just what we were looking for! Soft and chewy chocolate squares that you can make in a hurry.

The white chocolate topping adds that extra bit of deliciousness to the squares, but feel free to leave it out or substitute with another topping of your choice like melted milk or dark chocolate, peanut butter frosting, shredded coconut, or chopped nuts!

This recipe comes together fast so it’s better to have all the ingredients ready before starting.
