Homemade Tootsie Rolls
Since Halloween and the Holidays are right around the corner, I thought maybe someone would like to make these. Besides who doesn't like Tootsie Rolls, right?
Paula says they are easy to make!!
- 12 oz
- semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 c
- light corn syrup
- 3/4 tsp
- water, warm
- 1 3/4 tsp
- orange extract
- wax paper or colored foil for wrapping
Line a baking tray (with sides) with plastic wrap and set aside.
Stop to stir every 5-10 seconds so chocolate will not burn.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
Scrape mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and press down with the back side of a spatula to a 1” thickness.
Form each strip into a log and roll out the logs between your hands or on your work surface until they are about 1/2” in diameter.
Cut into sections as long as you like and set aside for a few minutes to harden up again after you have heated them with your hands.
Wrap in waxed paper or colored foil squares.
