Tootsie Roll Bites
These are soft, chewy chocolate taste of the Tootsie Rolls of yesterday- not the ones they sell today.
If you like you can roll them in chopped nuts or coconut when finished.
These make great gifts.
This recipe makes about 90 pieces.
- 2 oz
- unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 c
- light corn syrup (i use karo)
- 2 Tbsp
- softened butter
- 3/4 c
- powdered milk
- 1 tsp
- 2 to 3 c
- powdered sugar, sifted
Once the chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in the corn syrup and the butter, stirring until the butter is melted. Stir in the powdered MILK and the vanilla.
Once that sugar is mixed in, add a second cup of powdered sugar and stir to mix. At this point the dough will start getting stiff and it might be difficult to stir more powdered sugar into the candy.
