This would be fun to roll with some kids, especially since it’s so easy. It also melts in your mouth a bit more readily than the store-brand.

Homemade Tootsies

I never really loved Tootsie rolls, but I liked the simplicity of them. In the exchanging of valuable goods at the end of a long night of Trick-or-Treating, Tootsie rolls were almost never part of the bargain. They weren’t the hottest commodity (whatever was the largest size candy bar was, of course), but they were reliable and tasty.

So when I came across this recipe for homemade Tootsies, I had to try it. I had to!

Recipe Type: Dessert
Serves: 25 pieces
Ingredients
  • 7 ounces dark chocolate (chopped or chips)
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup Lyle's Golden Syrup
Instructions
  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Once melted, remove from heat and fold in the syrup and salt.
  2. Continue folding until completely combined--it will become a dough.
  3. Let cool to room temperature and then toss out on a cutting board and slice into rolls.
  4. Roll and wrap in candy paper.
  5. Store at room temperature.
Notes
*Wait until the chocolate comes to room temperature before rolling out. Try to resist the urge to put it in the fridge because within minutes, it will become rock-hard and a total nuisance. Of course, I don't at all speak from experience...
