Introduction: Homemade Tootsie Rolls

Want to have lots of Tootsie Rolls quickly and cheaply? This recipe gets the job done with candies that taste like Tootsie Rolls, but are much softer than the store-bought kind.

Seriosusly, this is easy. If you have all of the ingredients, you're only about 10 minutes away from eating them up.

Step 1: Ingredients

OK, let's get started, here's what you need
  •    2 tablespoons butter (29g), softened
  •    1/2 cup (40g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  •    3 cups (360g) confectioners' sugar
  •    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •    3/4 cup (85g) dry milk powder
  •    1/2 (120mL) cup white corn syrup

Note that that is dry milk powder, not instant milk. 

Step 2: Knead It!

Throw all of the ingredients into one large mixing bowl and knead it until it looks like one large lump of tootsie. It will have the consistency of Play-Doh. It may not seem like there's enough moisture in there when you start, but keep with it and it should turn out just fine.

Step 3: Shape It

To make your own rolls, just tear off a chunk of the tootsie dough, roll it up, and cut pieces off. Eat it up right there or wrap it in plastic wrap or wax paper to save it for later.

That's it! Enjoy.

    Beautiful ✌️??????????? ???

    hhhmmmm, I dont think we have tootsie rolls in Australia,ill have to make some and see what its all about

    Craig3 they are Really good. And no you don't. I know because I've lived most of my life in Australia and now in Canada. Hope you enjoy them.

    We do have tootsie rolls. SA. In Rite Price. There heaps yummy. But this recipe wasnt much better. We dont have corn syrup either. I found a replacement. Certainly not the best. If we DID have corn syrup on the other hand, it probably would be very nice.

    I've never seen them in Sydney though.

    Yeah, I doubt they'd be everywhere in Aus. It sucks that we don't have the same ingredients. :(

    corn syrup is glucose syrup though, should find that with all the cake decorating crap in woolies or something?

    Aaahk. Shall try that then. Thanks!
