Puffed Wheat Nutella Bars for World Nutella Day

It’s World Nutella Day and do I ever have a sweet treat for you. This nutella recipe mixes that chocolatey goodness with puffed wheat for a whole new take on rice crispy squares.

Puffed Wheat Nutella Treats


It’s World Nutella Day and Valentine’s Day is next week. I couldn’t resist putting those two things together to come up with a heart-shaped nutella bars treat.

I love love love Nutella. I remember the first time I tried it. I was on the monkey bars and a friend offered me a bite of her “Chocolate Sandwich”. Oh that chocolate smooshing out from between that squishy white bread.

Unfortunately, my mom wouldn’t buy Nutella for us to make into sandwiches. Just  not a healthy choice. And I don’t make chocolate sandwiches for my kids (or for myself *sigh*) either. But every now and then, especially on World Nutella Day, I get a tub and make a tasty nutella treat for us all to enjoy.

These puffed wheat Nutella bars come together really quickly. In seconds, really. You can cut them into bars or you can use cookie cutters to make shapes like the hearts in the picture. It’s a bit tough to push the cookie cutter through but worth it to see your kids’ smiles (not to mention that you get to snack on all the discarded edges. Mmm….Nutella heaven!).

Puffed Wheat Nutella Bars

These puffed wheat nutella treats come together really really quickly. Even quicker than rice crispy squares. And they only use 3 ingredients! You can either cut them into bars or use cookie cutters to make fun shapes.


  • 1/2 cup nutella
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 4 cups puffed wheat


  1. Grease an 8x8 inch cake pan.
  2. In a large pot over low heat mix the nutella and honey until they are well-combined and pull up a bit like taffy, about 30 seconds. Add the puffed wheat and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  3. Transfer to the pan. Use moistened fingers to push the puffed wheat mixture down evenly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before cutting into 16 squares or using cooking cutters to cut it into fun shapes. If you refrigerate for longer, they become a bit harder to cut.
  4. After cutting, refrigerate until serving.

    I am going to pick up some puffed wheat cereal the very next time I’m shopping. This is a treat I must make! Thanks. Pinning it now.

    Wow these look amazing and so easy! Could you use rice bubbles instead of the puffed wheat?

      Kalliste, I think you could probably use any cereal. The amount of cereal needed might change slightly based on how much surface area of each grain needs to be coated. Start with a little less than called for and add until the texture is not wet but still pliable.
