These are so easy to make, and really are similar to tootsi rolls. Yield is depending on how you cut them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small saucepan or in the microwave melt the butter with shortening, cocoa powder and salt until completely melted.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl; add in the remaining ingredients; mix well until blended (I start with a spoon then use my hands to finish mixing).
  3. Turn onto the counter or a board; knead until smooth (you will need a lot of hand powder for mixing this batter).
  4. Shape into desired-shaped logs, wrap in wax paper.
  5. These will harden and develop in flavor with sitting time.
