Puffed Wheat Balls

I haven't tried this one yet but it came from one of the pamphlets from the Baltimore Gas & Electric company from my Grandmother. There's no date on it, but the others date from 1937 - 1949. This came from a pamphlet on "Menus & Recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas: A Wide Selection for ALL Tastes and Budgets".

Puffed Wheat Balls

1 package puffed wheat
1 cup light molasses
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 tbsp vinegar
1/3 c granulated sugar

Melt the butter in a saucepan, all the molasses and sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved, then continue cooking until brittle when tested in cold water. Stir lightly toward the last of cooking to prevent burning; add the vinegar and mix lightly. Heat puffed wheat until very crisp, then pour the mixture over the wheat, stir until well blended and form into balls.
