COOKING WITH CENTS

  • I thought that with the way our economy is swaying-
  • I would start digging out recipes that are old and true and have stood the test of time- I am slowly teaching my Miss Ashley that we do not go to the store in between grocery shops-
  • I will try to share some of the recipes that I find brighten our day-
  • when we were kids mama made puff wheat squares about once a month- now I see these squares selling in tea shops for over 2 dollars for one piece- (kids can have fun making the mixture into balls similar to popcorn balls for their bag lunch-)
  • -------------------
  • PUFFED WHEAT SQUARES
  • --------------------------
  • 1/3 cup margarine-
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tables spoons cocoa-- and
  • 8 cups of puffed wheat
  • cook margarine, corn syrup, brown sugar and cocoa just until bubbly= if you over cook the mixture it will be quite hard to bite into the squares
  • pour over the puff wheat and pack into a greased 9 by 13 pan. allow to cook before cutting-
  • have fun-
  • hugs from Meme

What a great recipe to share. Our neighbor is introducing us to his fiance Valentine's weekend and this would be nice to serve with tea. Thanks!

I've seen them for sale too and rice krispy squares as well.Isn't that crazy? Neither of them take long to make.I think this is the recipe I used to make for my boys when they were little.
