Where can you find plain puffed wheat cereal anymore? Would love to try recipe but cannot find the cereal :(
I've loved puffed wheat squares since I was a little girl. My mom usually made them using cocoa powder in the recipe but once in awhile she'd make them without the cocoa and those were my favorite. These balls remind me of those chocolate free squares. For several years now I've cut back the amount of sugar in recipes but not the sweet by adding a bit of stevia powder along with the reduced sugar. I did that with these balls as well and the taste is just as great as I remember but had to butter hands well after each one to keep them from sticking to me more than itself. The second time I simple greased a pan and made them into squares. They were just as good but a fair bit easier to do. Unfortunately, the grandkids insist that the balls are better!
