Can you remember the very first baked good you made as a child? Was it a cake? Cupcakes? Brownies? Mine was Rice Krispy squares, my mom’s favourite because it didn’t actually involve any baking but produced the same sweet, crowd-pleasing end result that turning on the oven did.
Today, my favourite tasty treat to make with my kids are NESQUIK Puffed Wheat Squares. Akin to the Rice Krispy square, these are made with all-natural puffed wheat and flavoured with NESQUIK Chocolate Powder! The kids just love these soft, chewy chocolately bars!
A hybrid combination of corn syrup and melted mini marshmallows brings the perfect amount of ooey and gooey to this yummy snack. Quick and easy to make, these NESQUIK Puffed Wheat Squares are sure to be as much of a hit in your kitchen as they are in mine!
- ½ cup salted butter
- ½ cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup NESQUIK chocolate powder
- 2 cups of mini marshmallows
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 10 cups of puffed wheat
- In a large pot, combine butter, corn syrup, sugars and NESQUIK chocolate powder. Bring to a boil and stir continuously for 2 minutes and remove from heat.
- Add 1½ cups of mini marshmallows and vanilla and stir until marshmallows are completely melted.
- Add puffed wheat and remaining ½ cup of mini marshmallows and mix until well combined.
- Pour puffed wheat mixture into greased 9x13 pan and press down until firm.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Cut into squares and enjoy!

Simple and easy recipe worth sharing to my two daughters – they love to cook and bake. They’ll definitely love this!
Yumm! These look so good. I have to make these for my son. I know he will love these.
He’ll definitely love these! And yes, they are very easy. Enjoy
This looks amazing!!! My first dessert I made was a flan. My girls first were cupcakes and they did them with my mom. Find memories with Grandma!
Wow! Lam is a great dessert to start with! This is much easier, I assure you.
I didn’t experience baking when I was a kid but I remember my aunt bake brownies for us. It’s a great experience to help her baking.
I assure you these are way easier than brownies! Tasty too!
