Puffed Wheat Squares

8 cups puffed wheat cereal
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla

Grease an 8 in. square cake pan very well.

Measure puffed wheat out into a very large bowl.

In a small saucepan melt butter and add syrup, brown sugar and cocoa powder. Heat just until bubbles begin to form around the outside rim (do not boil). Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and pour over the puffed wheat. Stir quickly and thoroughly and press mixture (with a wooden spatula or your greased hands) firmly into pan. Cool and cut into squares.
