Puffed Wheat Crispy Treats

To change up the classic Rice Krispies treat, I substituted the cereal for two types of puffed wheat. 

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
10 oz marshmallows (approximate measurement)
3 cups puffed wheat cereal (approximate measurement)
3 cups KAMUT® puffed wheat cereal* (approximate measurement)
1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional, feel free to add peanuts, raisins, or other ingredients!)

Melt butter in nonstick pot on low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until they're completely melted. Remove from heat and fold in cereal and dried cranberries. Pour into a buttered nonstick baking pan (or lined with wax paper) and press flat. Let cool completely before cutting into squares. 

*Note: “KAMUT” is not the name of a wheat. It is a trademark used to market a grain with certain guaranteed attributes. In 1990, the word “KAMUT” was registered as a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark office. This was done to protect and preserve the exceptional qualities of a particular variety of the ancient wheat, khorasan, for the benefit of all those who are interested in high quality, healthy food. Only by the use of a trademark can customers be guaranteed that products produced with KAMUT® khorasan wheat contain the pure ancient variety, organically grown to high quality standards. 

KAMUT® khorasan wheat shall:
1. Be the ancient khorasan variety of wheat
2. Be grown only as a certified organic grain
3. Have a protein range of 12 – 18%.
4. Be 99% free of contaminating varieties of modern wheat.
5. Be 98% free of all signs of disease.
6. Contain between 400 and 1000 ppb of selenium
7. Not be used in products in which the name is deceptive or misleading as to the content percentage
8. Not be mixed with modern wheat in pasta
