    * Pamela *'s Note:

    I couldn't believe this quick snack was not a part of Recipezaar yet!! I grew up loving this and now my kids enjoy it too. I like to vary the sprinkles to match the season. Wilton has some awesome festive sprinkles that I like to use. Adding the cocoa will produce a chocolate flavour and omitting it will give a caramel flavour.Cook and prep time doesn't include cool time.

      DH loves Puffed Wheat Cake, so this was an automatic hit in our house. Although a do agree that 1 tsp. is not enough cocoa. I added 2 heaping tbsp. This was a nice soft and chewy square and will be made often.

      I wanted to use up some puffed millet, so I made a half a batch. 1 heaping teaspoon of cocoa to the half batch made a nice subtle flavor. I used sugar syrup leftover from another recipe in place of the corn syrup. They stuck together "loosely" but well enough to enjoy.
